Album Notes

Long out of print, this recording is available again -- capturing the wonderful voices and songs of Kaimu (Hawai`i island), as performed by the late G-Girl Keli`iho`omalu and her `ohana.

(from producer, Keoni Fujitani):
In early 1990, I felt a need to record some of the traditional Hawaiian folk music existing in rural communities on the big island of Hawai`i. I thought '90s may be the last opportunity of this type in this or any other century. I immediately thought of Kalapana, the Hawaiian community that was going through major cultural changes. I also thought of G-Girl Keli`iho`omalu who, with her husband Robert, raised 11 children on a homestead at Kaimu (the famous black sand beach). G-Girl's voice has a pleasing, Hawaiian quality and the songs she writes are about the Lord, love of the land, and her family.
