Original Hawaiian folk music was broadly based on chants and dances. This attractive Hawaiian music began to become
popular around the United States during the first half of the twentieth century. You can hear musical cross-currents that
take in jazz, hillbilly, blues, and western swing, with vocals that draw from country style yodels, slow pop ballads and
even vaudevillian delivery. Our wide selection is some way away from the clich d and watered-down popular image of
Hawaiian guitars that became so prevalent in the forties and fifties US music scene. So sit back, shut your eyes, dream of
the islands, and just let the wealth and variety of this music wash over you.
