Hapa-Haole Music Part 1 July 26, 2012

Today's "class" begins with Sonny Cunha, the father of hapa-haole music, and includes the very first hapa-haole song, played on an original Edison Amberola. We move on to one of the most popular hapa-haole songs (and winner of the 10th Annual Academy Award for Best Song -- do you know what song it is? Listen in to find out!) and share cuts played by the legends of early hapa-haole music, like Tau Moe, Andy Iona, and John K. Almeida. But we've only gotten halfway. Tune in next week for Part 2 (and the rest of "The Princess's" song...) -- Hawai'i will be "Call"ing.
