This will be a dancing concert with limited seating.

“… the most exciting and beautiful contemporary Hawaiian music the world knows.” ~ Maui Times
The blend of HAPA’s original vocal sound was originated on a wooden picnic bench in the beautiful little beach town of Lahaina on the island of Maui in the early 1980’s.
The overriding quality of their music is one of passion, beauty, and serenity, as found in the majestic tones of the oli (chant), mele (song), and the exhilarating innovative sounds of virtuoso guitar performances.
HAPA’s recordings have infused fearless and brilliant production while weaving unique, inventive elements of sound and textures into their intricate South Pacific tapestry.
