This EP has a collection of Hawiian themed songs. The sound is simialr to ‘Blue Hawaii’  which is actually performed here by The Waikikis.

The Shaka Hand Gesture – The Shape

Modelled into a silhouette Shaka sign. The shaka sign, sometimes known as “hang loose” is a gesture with friendly intent often associated with Hawaii and surf culture. It consists of extending the thumb and smallest finger while holding the three middle fingers curled, and gesturing in salutation while presenting the front or back of the hand; the wrist may be rotated back and forth for emphasis. The shaka sign is similar to the letter Y in the American manual alphabet in American Sign Language. The shaka sign should not be confused with the sign of the horns, where the index and pinky finger are extended and the thumb holds down the middle two fingers. According to the Honolulu Star-Bulletin, prevailing local lore credits the gesture to Hamana Kalili of Laie,who lost the three middle fingers of his right hand while working at the Kahuku Sugar Mill. Kalili was then shifted to guarding the sugar train, and his all-clear wave of thumb and pinkie is said to have evolved into the shaka as children imitated the gesture.[ Another theory relates the origin of the shaka to the Spanish immigrants, who folded their middle fingers and took their thumbs to their lips as a friendly gesture to represent sharing a drink with the natives they met in Hawaii.
