Mele Fong and her husband Richard Tom – The Hawaiian Serenaders – sing and play the traditional Hawaiian song Kaulana Na Pua on ukulele and u-bass over photos of Mele’s 30 plus Hawaiian history talks given to share her cultural heritage on Maui. #playuke #ukulelemusic #hawaiiansongs
Mele’s arrangement of Kaulana Na Pua is in F and C with Latin Strum for ‘ukulele.
This Hawaiian song was composed by Ellen Wright Prendergast in 1893 under the title “Mele Ai Pohaku” meaning stone eating song. The song protested the overthrow of Queen Lili’uokalani and opposed annexation to the United States.
