The Forgotten Story Of How Hawaiians Transformed American Music - Deepstash
Hawaiian Music in America

In 1915, Hawaiian music was becoming the most popular music in America. Hawaiian performers were in high demand.

After the overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy, Hawaiian musicians journeyed to the United States. Hundreds of ukulele & steel guitar players and hula dancers, in search of adventure or a chance to make a decent living.

Many never came home again.

Some would die in poverty and obscurity, thousands of miles away from their island homes. Others would find fame and fortune.

Along the way they would change American music forever.
