Hapa means two

See also

The term, 'hapa' in Hawaii means half, partly, or of mixed ethnic backgrounds. Thus, 'hapa haole' would indicate someone with a Caucasian and Pacific islander racial mix. In the realm of Hawaiian music, that term, 'hapa' will automatically bring to mind the duo of Barry Flanagan and Ron Kuala'au who form, 'Hapa'. The music of Hapa has been soothing and pleasing their fans and audiences in Hawaii, Japan and New York and points in between for nearly three decades now.

Here are some of the comments made about Hapa's music:

Kenny Loggins: 'Hawaii's musical rainbow warriors...they captivate your heart and soothe your soul.'

LA Times: 'Beautiful, fragile, spiritual, powerful.'

New York Times: 'The most successful group from Hawaii in recent history.'

Hapa performs this Saturday, November 10, 2012 at 6:00 p.m. at the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center, 1935 Manhattan Beach Blvd., Redondo Beach, CA 90278 Tickets and Information: www://KalaKoa.com 800 595 4849 Artist website: www.//Hapa.com/
