Album Notes

This unique recording presents 17 historical hula chants in contemporary hula kahiko settings, by various southern California kumu hula. Full text and translations are included.

Composed in sets and published in 19th-century Hawaiian-language newspapers, these mele express distinct tributes from her relatives and close friends. Woven into a poetic tapestry of aloha for Queen Kapi`olani, each individual mele is like a flower whose beauty is multiplied when combined together into a lei.
