Alfred Apaka (March 19, 1919 - January 30, 1960) was an American singer who possessed a romantic baritone voice. He was closely identified with Hawaii between the late 1940s and 1960. Born as Alfred Aiu Afat, Jr., Apaka was arguably the foremost interpreter of hapa-haole music which melded either Hawaiian music or traditional pop music with traditional pop arrangements and English lyrics that conveyed Hawaiian or other Pacific Island imagery and themes. He was of Chinese, Portuguese, and Hawaiian ancestry.
