Music Of Hawaii
MUSIC is an art form and cultural activity whose medium is sound organized in time. The common elements of music are pitch (which governs melody and harmony ), rhythm (and its associated concepts tempo , meter , and articulation ), dynamics (loudness and softness), and the sonic qualities of timbre and texture (which are sometimes termed the "color" of a musical sound). Different styles or types of music may emphasize, de-emphasize or omit some of these elements. Music is performed with a vast range of instruments and vocal techniques ranging from singing to rapping ; there are solely instrumental pieces , solely vocal pieces (such as songs without instrumental accompaniment ) and pieces that combine singing and instruments. The word derives from Greek μουσική (mousike; "art of the Muses "). See glossary of musical terminology

Music Of Samoa
Traditional Samoan musical instruments included a fala , which is a rolled-up mat beaten with sticks. It is an idiophone which often accompanied choral singing . Another idiophone, a soundingboard , sometimes accompanied the solo recitation of poetry. A conch shell was blown for signaling. Amusement for small groups and individuals in private was afforded by a jaw harp , a raft panpipe , and a nose-blown flute . In recent times it is not uncommon to see the use of Pātē , a hollowed out slit drum which was introduced by Cook Islands missionaries visiting Sāmoa. It usually replaces the Fala and is played in the same rhythmic patterns. A musical or theatrical presentation celebrating a special event in which performance groups alternate in an attempt to outdo each other's efforts has come to be called a fiafia . It is often a hotel performance, in which dances now called siva Samoa and sasa are performed

Music Of The Northern Mariana Islands
The MUSIC OF THE NORTHERN MARIANA ISLANDS is dominated by the folk music of the Chamorros , which remains an important part of the islands' culture, though elements of music left by American, German, Spanish and Japanese colonizers are also in evidence. There are both Carolinian and Chamorro traditional chant styles. A variant of the Spanish cha-cha-chá is popular, as is a Carolinian "stick dance" which combines improvised percussion and foot stomping. A well-known stick dance group is the Talabwog Men Stick Dancers . The national anthem of the Northern Mariana Islands is "Gi Talo Gi Halom Tasi " (in Chamorro , "Satil Matawal Pacifico" in Carolinian ), which was adopted on October 1996. The song's melody comes from a German tune, "Im Schoensten Wiesengrunde". Music festivals in the Northern Mariana Islands include the Fiestan Luta , an annual celebration.
