The Soaring Sixties - 1960s

We’ll conclude our mini-series of decade hopping as we remember how on August 21st, 1959, Hawaii entered the union as a State, and at that time, the beautiful and traditional Hawaiian music seemed as healthy as ever.
After all, Alfred Apaka had become an international icon and the poster boy of Hawaiian music.
But, just 6 months later, on January 30, 1960, Alfred Apaka died suddenly and unexpectedly.
In a few more years, the Beatles invasion was in full swing. and traditional Hawaiian music was fighting for its life.
