a niche area within the vast diversity of what's called Hawaiian Music.”

Back then Waikiki was like a pearl in an oyster, filled with palm trees, beach boys and song. As a child Robyn accompanied her mother, singer
Emma Veary to the great hotels, often listening from the beach as her mother charmed the throngs.
Ginger was across town at the Hawaiian Village where her father had a photography studio. Female
musical trios were commonplace back then, dressed in fabulous Muu Muu, always with flowers pinned in
their hair. infused with Hapa Haole songs and Hawaiian tunes.

Hula Honeys. They have released two other recordings, Girl Talk and Life Just Got Sweeter.
