I saw a mention of this song on Facebook a few months ago, Googled it, found this video, played it over and over, and only stopped to order the CD. I understand it’s a song that is sung at all Hawaiian parties and gatherings, and I can see why. Not only is it a terrific song, but it’s also a call for Hawaiian sovereignty. And just when the lyrics in English can’t seem to get any better, the singer, Dennis Pavao, joyously swings into jazzy Hawaiian. Bravo, Dennis!
I loved it so much I even memorized the Hawaiian part. A lanakila!
