Hawaiian Pop music

Hawaiian pop refers to music that is Hawaiian-tinged but rooted in another popular style. Outside influences have impacted Hawaiian music since foreign colonizers arrived on the island in the late 18th century, all bringing sounds from their homelands that would be adopted and mixed into the island's folk music. Hawaii's tourism boom of the 1930s popularized the island's music on the mainland while the 1940s and '50s found artists like Sol Hoopii crossing over to the pop charts by bringing jazz and big band music into the mix. Don Ho became the island's unofficial musical ambassador to the world with his easy-listening blend in the 1960s. The "Hawaiian Renaissance" movement of the 1970s favored traditional elements and traditional artists, but rock and soul music was still popular with the younger generation and remained influential into the 21st century. Besides a healthy rock scene, Hawaii is also home to a growing number of hip-hop artists who use the Hawaiian language in their lyrics. Jawaiian music - a mix of reggae and Hawaiian music - exploded on the island in the 1990s and introduced the artist Israel Kamakawiwo'ole. Like many Hawaiian pop artists, superstar Kamakawiwo'ole - or "IZ" - borrowed from numerous popular genres while retaining distinctive elements from the traditional music of the island.

Morning musume 'go girl koi no victory' music video question...?

When mari was caught 'out on a date' i read that the controversy was over the girls not being allowed to have boy friends, to supposedly 'keep the single image' BUT in the music video 'go girl koi no victory' i read that the girls were asked to say 'suki' (i love you) to the camera pretending that it was their boyfriends...now..can someone explain this controdiction to me?

it was just part of the act...something Tsunku came up with..has nothing to do with this controversy...but as you know..Morning Musume tends to be directed to males..that's why they have the whole cute not but sexy japanese girl thing going on. when they are saying "suki" they are saying it to the camera...which means their looking into the camera...their looking at you..so they are saying "i love you" to you..the person watching the music video. so...its what every fanboy wants. a Morning Musume girl saying "i love you" to them.. hope this helps..
