All Music Guide - Richard Foss

Those who appreciate Hawaiian music must have Hapa in their ...

    A Hawaiian masterpiece

    I think anyone who likes pop music or Hawaiian music would love this CD. I've loved Hawaiian music since I was a little girl but didn't discover Hapa until I was in my mid-thirties. And what a discovery! Their music is entirely original - no Don Ho remakes here - and almost entirely sung in Hawaiian. And the best part is, there isn't a bad song on there. I find myself singing along in Hawaiian (though I have no ideas what the words mean). The language itself has such musicality. This is one of my favorite albums of all time.
