Song Artist sings Hawaiian Music
George Lovato loves Hawaii the most, as a place to perform, and as a place to live. He has played at the Kona Surf Hotel on the big island of Hawaii, the Kapalua Bay Hotel on Maui, the Oceana, the Outrigger Hotel on Oahu, and several others, including the Hyatt Regency Hotel on Maui, as the MC for a show featuring “Jon (John) and Randy,” a very popular Hawaiian duo at the time; it was their last show together.
Jon Osorio and the late Randy Borden were a legendary contemporary Hawaiian duo.
Now living in beautiful Northern California George spends his time creating and recording new music and singing some old time Hawaiian favorites. Along with this George owns a successful cab company, in Sonoma County, Mr. Taxi.
The music of Hawaii includes an array of traditional and popular styles, ranging from native Hawaiian folk music to modern rock and hip hop. Hawaii's musical contributions to the music of the United States are out of proportion to the state's small size. Styles like slack-key guitar are well-known worldwide, while Hawaiian-tinged music is a frequent part of Hollywood soundtracks. Hawaii also made a major contribution to country music with the introduction of the steel guitar.
Traditional Hawaiian folk music is a major part of the state's musical heritage. The Hawaiian people have inhabited the islands for centuries and have retained much of their traditional musical knowledge. Their music is largely religious in nature, and includes chanting and dance music. Hawaiian music has had an enormous impact on the music of other Polynesian islands.
Guitars could have come to Hawaii from several sources: sailors, missionaries, or travelers to and from California. The most frequently told story is that it accompanied the Mexican cowboys (vaqueros) brought by King Kamehameha III in 1832 in order to teach the natives how to control an overpopulation of cattle. The Hawaiian cowboys (paniolo) used guitars in their traditional folk music. The Portuguese introduced an instrument called the braguinha, a small, four-stringed Madeira variant of the cavaquinho; this instrument was a precursor to the 'ukulele'.
