My favorite Stevie Wonder-esque Hawaiian funk and soul singer, Babadu, recently made an appearance online—via download. I. love. this. album. Each song immediately paints my mood with sunny, aloha-inspired energy. Please remember, Aloha Got Soul is not the kind of Hawaiian music blog that willingly uploads Hawaiian music for free download. Every download you see here is found via the web, I did not upload them.
Babadu’s real name was Solomon K. Davis III. He was married to Nani Kinimaka-Davis. One of their daughters, Kea Milo-Davis, is a R&B soul singer in Hawaii. Kea was part of the entertainment group Fab 4 (Hawaii) until their farewell in 2010.
