Lava by Kuana Torres Kahele and Napua Greig and James Ford Murphy

Volcano lava melts rock. Disney’s Lava melts hearts. Ahh…

Ku’u Home o Kahalu’u by Jerry Santos

Jerry Santos’s haunting melody beckons us back to that beloved time of our lives…childhood.

Ka Uluwehi O Ke Kai by Hapa

Ka Uluwehi O Ke Kai is a perennial favorite in Hawaii, sung and danced by nearly every Hawaii musician and hula dancer. It was composed by Edith Kanakaole and speaks about the “plants of the sea” (limu, or seaweed). I love Hapa’s version below.

On Fire by Ka’au Crater Boys

Hawaiian music isn’t all soft and breezy ukulele strumming. The Ka’au Crater boys duo go off in this quick tempo acoustic masterpiece. Picture yourself running down a volcano!

Opihi Moe Moe by Ledward Kaapana

Opihi are round limpets shells that cling to the lava rocks where the ocean meets the land, and they’re a delicacy in Hawaii. Opihi Moe Moe “the sleeping opihi” is a sing about the cycle of life.

Island Style by John Cruz (ft. Jack Johnson and Paula Fuga)

John Cruz’s all-time classic song Island Style captures the feeling of being from and growing up in Hawaii. This version includes local boy Jack Johnson and local girl Paula Fuga. Enjoy!

Surf Pa’ina by Sean Na’auao

“Use your surfboard to open the door” — is one of my all-time favorite lines from a song. Surf Pa’ina (surf party) is a beautiful, haunting song that reveals the purity and soul of surfing.
