Putumayo Kids presents Hawaiian Playground, a lively collection that explores the playful side of Hawaii's musical offerings. With selections featuring the sounds of ukuleles, steel guitars and harmonious vocals, this album is as colorful as the islands which inspired it.
Hawaiian Playground is a truly family-friendly compilation. Children will love singing along to Keali'i Reichel's 'Toad Song' and bouncing around to Willie K's'Holoholo Ka'a' while parents might find themselves daydreaming about escaping to these warm tropical islands to the classic Hawaiian stylings of Robi Kahakalau and Raiatea. Songs from Hawaiian artists Ehukai and Imua make us feel at home as they sing about their love and appreciation for their island homes.The CD also includes tracks from mainland artists who have incorporated Hawaiian sounds into their music. New York's The Moonlighters and Joe McDermott of Texas encourage listeners to get away to the shady palms and sandy beaches of Hawaii. Two of Hawaii's local fan favourites, Justin Young and Teresa Bright, round out this charming collection.
