Mele Fong and her husband Richard Tom – The Hawaiian Serenaders – sing and play Holoholo Ka’a on ukulele and u-bass over photos of car ferry trips Maui to Oahu and back. Holoholo Ka’a means going on a car ride in Hawaiian. Plus, Rich tells the translation and plays a harmonica solo. #playuke #ukulelemusic
Mele’s arrangement of the Holoholo Ka’a is in F with 8-chords and I Wanna Chuck Strum for ‘ukulele.
This Hawaiian song was written by Clarence Kinney probably when speeding cars were somewhat of a novelty, roads were crooked, and breakdowns frequent. Lyrics and translation by Na Mele o Hawaii Nei, Elbert and Mahoe, University of Hawaii Press, 1970.
