Hawaiian music resulted from three kinds of music colliding with one another.

First, there were native Hawaiian chants and dances, that were accompanied by wooden percussion--like the gourd hula drum and the split bamboo rattle

Then, there came the music of the Argentinian cowboys, with their guitars and charangos:



The Hawaiians simplified the charangos and tuned the guitars their own way, so they could play with slides instead of fingers (the Hawaiians were laid back and favored labor-saving practices).

Finally, there came August Wilhelm Berger, Queen Liliʻuokalani's Royal Orchestra Director, who brought Viennese music to Hawaii:



But them all together, and you get Hawaiian Music, which sounds a lot like Roy Rogers and Dale Evans.
