In 1925, Sol made his very first recordings for small Hollywood based labels, Hollywood Records and Sunset Records.

Georgia Hawaiians

Several black Americans began recording Hawaiian hapa haole music in the 1930s.
Duke Ellington at Harlem’s Cotton Club.
In Hollywood, recordings were made by Louis Armstrong, Fats Waller, Nat King Cole, Billy Ward, and the Mills Brothers.
While my father, as a local radio announcer in Honolulu, often referred to the black artists as “Royal Hawaiians”, Fats Waller himself described his band as “Georgia Hawaiians”.

40th annual New Years Party

As the old year was ending in ancient times in Hawaii, Kahuna associated with certain heiau on the Western side of each inhabited Hawaiian island would watch for the appearance of “Na Huihui o Makali’i”, a star cluster that appears in the evening sky.
Once “Makali’i” was seen, the next new moon would begin the “Makahiki” season, a 4-month period when warfare was prohibited, and people celebrated with games and sports.
When Westerners arrived with their tradition of the New Year’s celebration, it coincided with the Hawaiians practice of Makahiki.
Thus, “Hau’oli Makahiki Hou” now says “Happy New Year!”
Today, we’ll spin some lyrical libations, as we share our 40th annual Territorial New Year’s Party.
