Hapa

The Hawaiian duo Hapa teamed singers/guitarists Barry Flanagan and Keli‘i Kaneali‘i, who first met in 1983; deriving their name from a pidgin slang expression for "ethnically mixed, " Kaneali‘i (a Honolulu native) and Flnagan (a product of New Jersey who relocated to Maui in 1979) then spent the next decade honing their distinctive sound, an update of traditional Polynesian textures and rhythms incorporating elements of pop and worldbeat. Building a devoted following throughout the islands, in 1993 Hapa issued their self-titled debut LP; the record was an unprecedented smash, breaking countless sales records on its way to earning six Na Hoku Hanohano awards (the Hawaiian equivalent of the Grammys). The duo's popularity expanded beyond their home state as well, and they became the first Hawaiian act to appear at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival; a Christmas-themed release, Holidays, followed in 1995, and two years later Hapa returned with In the Name of Love, highlighted by a cover of the U2 hit which lent the record its name. Surf Madness, their second release of 1997, soon followed. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

The first time (and countless times after that) that I heard Hapa sing E O Mai Ku`U Milimili, it was perhaps the most beautiful song I've heard in a long time. The rich, soaring voices filled with passion should be heard many so that everyone can appreciate the true talent that Hapa brings to Hawaiian music. Mahalo, Hapa. I have been to Kauai and Maui...and want to return as soon as possible. Aloha.

Thermal9 Hapa has the most beautiful version of Jason's lullaby. Check it out on their Hapa album, the one with them sitting on the ground with children.

Well, I've finally gone insane. There's a version of Justin's Lullabye out there that I heard about three years ago, and it's a real Knockout. I've searched every album I can find and it's not there. The only place I heard it oddly enough, it was used by Dish Network as background music - you know - when you get the Dish screen if you haven't paid your bill or their satellite is down (pick one). Never heard it since and now I have gone stark raving mad. Any help, I'd be very grateful! LM
MOHALO TO ALL MY FRIENDS ON MAUI
I sure do miss hawaii,but no problem I'll be back in KONA soon ALOHA
I always thought I should have been born in Hawaii...wis h I could go there someday.
Born n raised on Oahu, proud to be Hawaiian. Hapa always always brings me back home, home that i miss so much. I will return one day to enjoy the warm skys, cool beaches and of course da beer.

Love Hapa and respect their awesome talent. I played two of their songs at my wifes services and brought everyone to tears as the songs were so touching. I got a chance to see them live a couple of years later and expressed by eternal love of their music and the wonderful memories they bring back of the many years we traveled to Hawaii before she passed and how much she loved their music. Mahalo Hapa!

Definitely the outstanding Hawaii group. We are planning to see their concert in Fall River, MA next week.
Living in Honolulu I am surrounded by trad. Hawai'ian music esp. in Waikiki. Never get tired of Hapa, bought their first album in 1993 and have been a fan ever since!
Love the Hapa - makes Seattle happier in winter! I miss Hawaii so!
missing home like i cant believe i feel like going home eating my poke and poi drinking my heine and sitting back and relaxing on the shores of Nanakuli!!!
Celeste might be on to something. I recall that the original duo parted ways, but Barry is working with another talented kama'aina and Hapa continues to thrive.
Please update this bio page. Seems to be way out of date...

From New Jersey. Enjoying beautiful melodious Hawaiian music on Pandora Radio. Love harmony and melody and love Hawaiian music. So sorry to learn that IZ is no longer with us. What a powerful voice. Keali Reichel is A+ with me and soooo handsome. By the way, I am 67 years old and can still appreciate a nice looking man. Would love to see Keali on tour in concert.
