American singer whose romantic baritone voice was closely identified with Hawaii between the late 1940s and the early 1960s. Alfred Apaka was arguably the foremost interpreter of Hapa haole music, which melded Hawaiian music with traditional pop music arrangements and English lyrics to convey Polynesian imagery and themes.
Alfred Apaka was of Chinese, Portuguese, and Hawaiian ancestry. He died suddenly of a heart attack on 30 January 1960, aged 40, while playing paddle tennis at a Honolulu YMCA.
