The Best of Hawaiian Music

HawaiiHawaii. To many, this is a dream vacation spot of beaches and ukuleles, the hula dance, and the best surf around. Hawaii is also home to many of the best and most underrated singers on the planet. Don’t believe me? Here’s a sampling!

Israel Kamakawiwo’ole

Also known as “Bruddah Iz,” Israel Kamakawiwo’ole mixes originals with superb renditions of many songs you might recognize. And he had a wonderful sense of humor! Though he unfortunately passed away in 1997 due to health issues, we can still enjoy his music.
