October 06, 2016

Leading up to the Oct. 16 Hawaiian Springs Hawaiian Classics: Kamaka Ukulele 100th Anniversary Celebration at the Hawaii Theatre, we'll be featuring our favorite songs from performers that will be playing.

Here's Ho'okena with He Wahine U'i:

Literally translated as The Beautiful Wahine, He Wahine U'i is a kolohe song about the love of many different flowers, or sweethearts.

ʻAuhea, ʻauhea wale ʻoe
E ka pua, e ka pua lokelani
A he nani, a he nani no ʻoe
He wahine uʻi

ʻAuhea, ʻauhea wale ʻoe
E ka pua, e ka pua mokihana
Hana aʻe, hana aʻe no wau
Lei hoʻohie

ʻAuhea, ʻauhea wale ʻoe
E ka pua, e ka pua kukui
Kui aʻe, kui aʻe no wau
A lawa kou lei e ka ipo

ʻAuhea, ʻauhea wale ʻoe
E ka pua, e ka pua violeta
Leka mai, leka mai ʻoe iʻau
Auwē ka auwē ʻako

ʻAuhea, ʻauhea wale ʻoe
E ka pua, e ka pua ka `ilima
ʻElima, ʻelima oʻu po
Hoʻi nele aʻe
For you, this is for you
The flower, the roselani flower
Beautiful, you are so beautiful
The beautiful lady

For you, this is for you
The flower, the mokihana flower
I'll make, I'll make a lei
A lei so attractive

For you, this is for you
The flower, the kukui flower
I'll string, I'll string a lei
Until your lei is complete, sweetheart

For you, this is for you
The flower, the violet flower
Stay, you and I must stay together
To pluck (flowers)

For you, this is for you
The flower, the` ilima flower
Five, I had five nights
And left with nothing

Hōkūle‘a - A Tiny Canoe's Mighty Mission for Island Earth
Hōkūle‘a - A Tiny Canoe's Mighty Mission for Island Earth

July 12, 2017

On June 17, 2017 people started appearing at Magic Island, carrying their lawn chairs, many strands of ti-leaf and maile lei, and their tents to set up camp early in the morning. Many even before dawn. In a several hours, at around 9 a.m., the Polynesian sailing canoe, Hōkūle‘a, is coming home after a three-year voyage around the world. Without using any modern-day navigational equipment, the 62-foot-long double-hulled wa‘a, a replica of ancient voyaging outrigger canoe, charted her way through high seas beyond the Pacific, only using their traditional wayfinding methods and techniques. Instead of relying on GPS and other modern technology, they utilized the organic clues provided by the Mother Earth—wind, swells, clouds, moon, stars, fish and birds, just like our ancestors did it thousands of years ago.

About two hundred years ago, the exotic drink of Ethiopia, finally reached to the Island of O‘ahu after travelling half way around the globe. It was Don Francisco de Paula Marin, the Chilean adventurist who served for King Kamehameha I as an interpreter, physician and confidant…a jack-of-all-trades, who planted the first coffee seeds in Hawai‘i back in 1813.
