HAPA just celebrated its 30 of influences ranging from ancient Polynesian rhythms and genealogical chants to the strummed ballads of Portuguese fisherman and Mexican cowboys, and the inspired melodies and harmonies of the traditional church choirs of the early missionaries. Add a dose of American acoustic folk/rock, and you have what has been described as the “most exciting and beautiful contemporary Hawaiian the anniversary. Like the islands themselves, HAPA’s music is an amalgam music the world knows!” (Maui Times)

The HAPA name reflects the diverse backgrounds of its musicians and the mix of cultures that converge in Hawai‘i. Brilliant guitarist Barry Flanagan has been the guiding force of HAPA since its beginnings in 1983. He is joined by Kapono Nā‘ili‘ili — singer, Hawaiian chanter, multi-instrumentalist, hula dancer — who matches Barry’s embrace of many musical genres.
