Songs You May Have Missed #234


Hapa: “Olinda Road” (1997)

From the acoustic duo known as Hapa. The original version of “Olinda Road” appeared on their 1995 debut album. This slightly reworked version is from a Putumayo compilation of a couple years later.

These guys play an interesting mix of contemporary and traditional Hawaiian music alongside covers of artists such as John Lennon, U2, Santana and Santo & Johnny, as well as instrumentals that stretch the Hawaiian guitar pop sound a dozen different, appealing ways.

(I bet you can guess which Santo & Johnny song they covered)
