                           Often described as the “sound of Maui,” HAPA’s music evokes a heavenly tropical
                           paradise. They combine ancient chants, ballads of Portuguese fisherman and Spanish
                           cowboys, inspired melodies of early missionary choirs, the elegant movement of hula
                           and the exhilarating sounds of slack key guitar. A dose of American acoustic folk/
                           rock also creates music that is exciting, serene and beautiful.
