Album Notes

EASY AND SOPHISTICATED HULAS was originally released in 1962 as a 2-vinyl album of the "easy" and the "sophisticated" hula dances of Hawai`i. It is now available as a 2-CD set.

In selecting the musical numbers collected, the producers requested various dance instructors in Hawai`i to list the most popular hulas taught in their schools.

Disc #1 includes the easy hapa-haole hulas which form a repertoire of standards for the beginner-level dancer.

Disc #2 includes the sophisticated Hawaiian hula for the advanced student...the hula melodies most often used by professional entertainers.
