"Music is the cup that holds the wine of silence. Sound is that cup, but empty. Noise is that cup, but broken.”

Kohala Girls

The Kohala Girls was a female band, formed in 1932  in Chicago, playing steel guitars in the 40s...
The band was created by Letritia Kandle who learned hawaiian guitar when it was fashionable in the 30s.
In 1937 the first guitar amplifier, the "Grand Letar",  was used by Letritia, as a real pioneer of electrified instrument.
