Tradition and innovation come together in Hawaiian harmony,
By A Customer
This review is from: Hapa (Audio CD)
On their debut album, Hapa successfully blend traditional Hawaiian melodies with original songs which showcase their talent for vocal harmonies. Barry Flanagan also demonstrates his ability to coax soothing and intricate melodies from the guitar, both on the vocal and instumental tracks. I have only been to Hawaii once, but listening to this album brings back fond memories of the relaxing tropical atmosphere. As an introduction to the mix of old and new in contemporary Hawaiian music, this album is second to none.
