Many look upon the Hawaiian Renaissance of the 1970s as a time of cultural reconnection for Hawaii’s people.
But the Renaissance could not have occurred unless there was an awakening to begin the process of rediscovery.
Folk Songs of Hawaii was the cross over album, featuring Noelani Kanoho Mahao, Ka’upena Wong, and the Leo Nahenahe Singers, that first captured the interest of Hawaii’s youth, already immersed in the Hootenany folk scene of the early 1960s.
So we’ll dive into our records archives to hear our favorite Folk Songs of Hawaii music from 1963.
