Soft acoustic guitars, strumming ukuleles, and a soft cool beat take you back to the islands. This is the kinda track where you sit on the beach with a bunch of friends drinking beer and hangin out! Instrumental, Hawaiian, Hawaii
Inspired by riding down Kuhio Highway in Kauai with the radio going and the wind in your face and enjoying the time with those you love most. The melody was played with a vintage Sonny D. ukulele and backed by big acoustic guitars and a light Hawaiian lap steel guitar. Instrumental, Hawaiian, Hawaii
There is nothing like being in the water and just paddling. This track just takes you away to the islands; the warm tropical breezes and the mai tais. Soft ukuleles and acoustic guitars make this track groove. Instrumental, Hawaiian, Hawaii
The cool breeze, the warm water and the lure of the islands. Imagine walking on the beach, kayaking in the blue water, sipping a Mai Tai by the pool with the one you love. Feel all your pressure and anxiety release. Hawaii is about fun and the Aloha spirit. The perfect track for commercials. Instrumental, Hawaiian, Hawaii
Island style reggae brah! Big beat with ukulele and big bass. Hang out, dance, drink and enjoy life. This catchy groove makes you dream about those wild nights in Hawaii. Instrumental, Hawaiian, Hawaii
