Click to enlargeHapa - Maui

Like the Hawaiian islands themselves, Hapa’s music is an amalgam of influences ranging from ancient Polynesian rhythms and genealogical chants to the strummed ballads of Portuguese fisherman, Spanish cowboys, and the inspired melodies and harmonies of the traditional church choirs of the early missionaries. Add to this a dose of American acoustic folk/rock, and you have what has been described as the "most exciting and beautiful contemporary Hawaiian music the world knows!"… (Maui Times). These disparate ingredients blended together musically in the Pacific emotes the unique flavor of what Hawaii and Hapa music is: "beautiful, fragile, spiritual, powerful"… (L.A. Times).

"...a soundtrack for 21st century Polynesia, where native art, history and music are pulled together by the powerful force of Maui."
