This colorful documentary of Hawaii captures the natural beauty of the exotic tropical islands. Native dancing and music accompany the ceremonies that have long been of interest to tourist. The roots of Hawaiian native music and its offshore influences from Spanish cowboy music, Christian hymns, and the strains of steel guitar illustrate the progressive blend of the traditional and modern that makes the music unique and immediately recognizable throughout the world.
