Traditional Hawaiian rhythms and instruments continue to influence the dynamic and distinct music coming out of Hawaii
that is widely celebrated for its breeziness and easy listening. The state's signature melding of cultures and styles has produced new genres of music altogether, like "Jawaiian," a Hawaiian style of reggae, and fresh, transcendant covers of classic songs.
