Story Behind the Song | Sanoe | by Ukulele Mele - lanikai-beach.net

Fong aka Ukulele Mele tells the story behind the Hawaiian song Sanoe. Published in 1897, the song was written by Princess Liliuokalani and her friend, Elizabeth Achuck. As the story goes, a high-born lady at King Kalakaua’s court attracted many male admirers, even though she was married. Due to her prominence, the composers kept her love experiences beneath the kauna (hidden meaning) of the song.
