Abstract

The paper is theoretically underpinned by discourses on the contested nature intrinsic to cultural landscapes. Music is used as a means of exploring socio-cultural contexts. It studies the limited set of published lyrics of hole bushi, the music of Japanese plantation workers in late 19th century Hawaii. The cultural landscapes of this immigrant group are extrapolated from their own lyrical narratives to show shifts in their constructions of landscapes of desire and landscapes of despair
