Abstract

This paper analyses the relationship between the marketing and consumption of popular music and the historical representation of one tourist destination and its peoples. It focuses on how Hawai‘i was represented when it became an American state, mass tourism was emerging and graphic record covers were new. It traces the manner in which Hawai‘i was commodified and represented for vicarious consumption, and how particular musical objects created and reflected structures of tourism.
