I have never heard the term. I always thought that the genra was refered to as exotica.
Or is that a completely different genra?
What would you consider:
Do Ho
Arthur Lyman
Martin Denny
Hilo Hattie
Alfred Apaka

Yes, Exotica is different.

The explanation makes more sense when you consider Charles E. King, who wrote alot of the early songs, was one quarter Hawaiian.
Jack and Harry Owens also wrote some of the standards, but they were white guys. Harry wrote Sweet Leilani, for example, and Jack wrote the Hukilau Song.

Probably every "Hawaiian" song you know is Hapa Haole. If it has lyrics, it likely is. Some of the more traditional ones get in the mix too. But if it has English lyrics, it's Hapa Haole.

Exotica is instrumental lounge music that has a exotic sound and often some connection like the cover, song title or home land of the performer.

Then there is Tahitian music, which is my newer favorite for it's fast beats and energy.

By the way, my Exotica/Hapa Haole/Tahitian station on Live365 is gone. There was no interest. I may bringit back closer to Hukilau next year for a few months, but it's just not being listened to. Too quiet and slow I guess.

About 10-12 years ago we would sit in a restaurant called the "El Crab Catcher" on Kaanapali Beach (Where "Hula Grill" now is) and listen to a Two Man group called "Hapa". It was one Haole and one Local Boy. They played there about every night, and we were sooo sick of listening to them, when they won a handfull of Na Hokuhanohano Awards (Hawaiian Grammies). Then they started playing larger venues and charging money to see them. I think they put out a few well received albums before splitting up.

If you're interested in a Hawaiian Album I'd recommend Kelii Reichel's "Kawaipunahele". It's Hawaii's all time number one selling album for a good reason. (check out who did the graphics) I know it's available at tropicaldisc.com

Mauitiki, We just saw Hapa play out here last week in Santa Cruz. I didn't know much about them or their music. They were super talented and the hula was beautiful. However, it was not really the style of Hawaiian music that I am into. From what I gather, it is still one original guy from way back along with a couple new guys.
I have The Hawaii CD from the "Best of International" series. It's really good. I think the distributor is "Madacy"

Did anyone mention this CD...

Vintage Hawiian Treasures: Hapa-Haole Hawaiian Hula Classics, Volume 1

I picked it up from a Borders on Maui during my honeymoon and it's great--old recordings from 78s remastered. You can get it from the manufacturer here:

Swanky, was this now-defunct channel different than your Swank Pad broadcast? If so, I didn't even know about it. I would have tuned in for sure.

One of my favourite CDs is the re-issue of Les Paul and Mary Ford's "LOVERS' LUAU", with Hapa Haole songs, but all done instrumental (guitar) with 50s background choruses, very lilting, dreamy "mood" music.

And then there was Paul Page, my hero...

This promises to be a fine specimen of hapa haole:

Should be fine crooning, hot Hawaiian steeling, mad ukeing, moody upright bassing, and jazzy guitaring.

Here's some of my fave compilation disks, nearly all 1920s to 1950s vintage stuff. Most are sung in Hawaiian, so I don't know if that disqualifies them as HH:

Legends of Falsetto
History of Hawaiian Steel Guitar
Vol. 6-Vintage Hawaiian Treasures
Hawaiian Steel Guitar Classics
Blue Hawaii (not the movie soundtrack, prolly the closest to HH you are looking for. I mean, Bing Crosby is on it!) (http://tinyurl.com/6yr89)
