Humuhumunukunukuapua’a Hot Links

Hapa Haole Hula Girl (My Honolulu Hula Girl), Alfred Apaka with Danny Stewart’s Hawaiians (1951) Decca Records “Alfred Aloha Apaka (1919–1960) was one of the influential performers in the history of Hawaii’s popular music. Although he recorded for less than a decade, Apaka set the standards for modern Hawaiian music with his joyful, baritone vocals and highly entertaining performances.” (BTW, “hapa haole” doesn’t translate to “Honolulu,” and is also a style of music.)

    You won’t believe what is hung in bathroom. I thought that reef fish sounded so familiar, only to realize it was in my bathroom the whole time.

    Unfortunately I can’t attach the picture, don’t know how.
    My mother-law is hawaiian, so she framed the reef fish with its hawaiian name. It hangs in my bathroom.

    That’s the least frenetic version of that song I’ve heard. I’m rather partial to the recording by the Sweet Hollywaiians, but besides being faster, they’re also Japanese, so the lyrics are much less intelligible.

    You missed a bet, though. The humuhumunukunukuapua’a is actually included in the lyrics of My Little Grass Shack in Kealakekua, Hawaii. I’ve always thought that its alternate name, the Picasso triggerfish, was also pretty cool.
