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

On the Sunday morning of March 18th, 1866, a powerful fast steamer, the Ajax docked into Honolulu Harbor safely after a 10-day sea voyage from San Francisco. Receiving a cheerful welcome of gliding albatross from up above and a crowd of flying-fish in front of their decks, passengers watched the green valleys and swaying palm trees gradually coming into their views. Church bells tolled in the distance.

Every year, on the first Saturday of January, February and March, those who are allured by the giant humpback whales, gather together on their outposts throughout the islands. Their serious gazes are glued on the glaring sea spanning out its full panoramic view in front of them. Their binoculars move slowly and quietly like an experienced hunter who would never disturb the animal until “the moment” comes. When the moment arrives, a white whiff arises miles away; a pack of humpbacks are here, breaching. Instead of mustering its crews with ropes and tools for attack, they muster their notebooks and pens. They are ‘hunting’ for whales with their eyes only, just counting.

Like many of you, I never get tired of seeing the multitudes of greenery in the islands. It could be the distant peaks of velvety mountain ranges from a window, ferns crouching through a pathway to the trunks of bulky trees or the constant-hula movement of tall palm trees in the air. Among the many greens composing the island scenery, what I cherish the most are those super-sized tropical leaves.
