Welcome to HawaiianRainbow.com
Your home for Hawaiian Music on the Internet

We play mostly traditional Hawaiian music, meaning mostly in Hawaiian language. Hawaiian music includes chanting, music for hula dancing, the telling of stories, to communicate genealogy and mythology. While Hawaiian music is relatively simple in melody and rhythm, it is complex and rich in poetry, as well as vocal styles. Combine Hawaiian music with a hula dancer to interpret the story, and you have one of the most beautiful cultural art forms in the world.
