The Hawaiian War Chant Extravaganza 2012

Sunday, November 18, 2012

The Hawaiian War Chant appears on nearly every album of Hawaiian and exotic music recorded in the 1950s and '60s. It's an up-tempo number, and so a lot of eccentric, excited arrangements of the tune were recorded. David Garland offers version after version of this ditty, which was actually inspired by an old love song.
