A young quartet made their historic debut recording in December of 1977.
“Halona”, consisted of:
Jack Ha’o – leader & piano
Manu Palama – ukulele
Kaulana Kasparovitch – guitar
Kimo Alama – upright bass & ipu
All four members shared the solo and harmony vocals on all of the songs.
Kimo, Kaulana, & Manu were all kumu hula so the music reflected their love of hula.
Their album was appropriately titled, “Chalangalang”, perfectly describing the musical content.
Today, we’ll celebrate the recorded legacy of Halona.
