Emma Veary explores the many treasures within the music of the various ethnic groups that make up Hawaii. She performed in Broadway musicals, operettas, theater, the Savoy in London, and the Royal Hawaiian Hotel, the Halekulani Hotel and the Kahala, three of of Hawaii's finest hotels during her time. This album is the best of Emma, performing 25 of the Hawaiian Classics.

Her rich voice is operatic in style, but yet full of feeling... and the songs she sings here paint a clear lyrical image of Hawaii through the musical artistry of the composers, mostly its royal leaders, Kings, Princes, Queens and Princesses.
