Description

Kela wai kamahao, aha hana
Wai halulu i ka moana

“As long as I can remember, this hula was part of our repertoire. I like it because of the lele uwehe, the kalakaua, and the level changes. The chant is well written with the use of much experience and wide view of the world.”

This mele from the monarchial collection is a good example of the style of poetry from the period and the method it was delivered. The sophisticated lyrics combined with the ability to weave words with foreign adventures and views along with deep kaona is always a treat for the senses.

This hula kahiko, danced to a lively ipu beat, was written with royal Kamamalu in mind. Her brothers penned this mele in observation of their familial experiences.
