Aloha! What a beautiful day it was on Da Beach Side. We had a “Paina,” or Party at Carl Smith Beach Park in a part of Hilo, Hawaii called Keaukaha or Da Beach Side of Hilo.  When a group of Hawaiians get together for a party… You’ll see Guitars & Ukuleles and sometimes a Tub Bass or “Pakini.”  We Hawaiians call this “Kanikapila” or “Back Yard Jam!”  I was hoping to capture a bit of Hawaii that tourist on Waikiki Beach are missing out on. Much Aloha!
