Hawaiian slack key guitarist Patrick Landeza says “I’m not a writer; I’m a storyteller.” In his memoir "From the Island of Berkeley" his storytelling gives readers a glimpse of what it was like to learn the art of slack key guitar from some of the masters of the genre – Raymond Kāne, Dennis Kamakahi, Cyril Pahinui, and George Kuo. In the process of learning slack key, Landeza connected with his cultural roots and laid to rest the insecurities that were implanted in his mind by people who questioned his Hawaiian identity because he was not born in Hawai`i. "From the Island of Berkeley" provides an entertaining and moving insight to the struggles and triumphs of one of today’s leading Hawaiian slack key guitarists, who just happened to be born on the other side of the Pacific.
