Traditional Mele - community submissions

Welina O‘ahu
Kumu hula and award-winning musician Manu Boyd shares some of his favorite mele Hawaiʻi in our new series, Mele Hoʻoheno – Cherished Songs. We invite you to join him (and some very special guests) as he explores the meaning and significance of each song while offering personal memories, reflections, and anecdotes that help bring the story to life. E nanea mai!

Pali o ka Moa
A ka luna mākou a‘o Kehoni, ‘Ike ‘ia i ka nani a‘o Puakea. There we lingered at the heights of Kehoni, Our eyes savored Puakea’s incomparable beauty.
