Mana’o:
 
When I sat with a terminally ill woman patient at Kalaupapa in 1975, I saw in her a deep happiness radiating from within. She had no arms, no nose, but a bright smile and when I finished singing a song to her she smiled and applauded with what was left of her arms, two stumps that the Disease had left to her. Yet, the sound of her applause was louder than the sound of thunder. I was overcome and burst into tears. She had shown me that she accepted her deformity and her soul was about to be released. She passed away that day. And so the song is a joyous one because I knew that in the next world she would be whole again. That changed my life. There is no sadness in a place built on it. There is only hope and faith.

2. Nā Pua O Kalaupapa – 4:20 – Words and music by Stephen Inglis ASCAP
A song of gratitude. My childhood days at Hale Mohalu and my time at Kalaupapa have enriched my life in immeasurable ways. ” Mai na Pali uluwehi I ka ‘ehu o ke kai. Kō ‘oukou mau leo e mau ai” “From the verdant cliffs to the misty sea spray, your voices will forever live”

Hālaʻi Nō Ka Anemoku O Kalaupapa The peninsula of Kalaupapa is serene, calm indeed
Hoʻomaikaʻi au i kipa ai I am grateful and blessed for my visits
nēia ʻāina waiwai loa me ke aloha lā to this land rich with love
Mahalo, mahalo iā ʻoukou Many thanks to you all
 
Chorus-
Mai nā Pali uluwehi i ka ʻehu o ke kai From the lush, verdant cliffs to the misty sea spray
Kō ʻOukou mau leo e maui ai Your voices will forever live
He makana iā kākou, he mau pua mae ʻole These never fading flowers are a gift to us all
Mahalo, Mahalo iā ʻoukou Many Thanks to you all
 
I kēia huliau ke nalowale nei In this period of change and transition,
ka nohona i ka wā kahiko the lifestyle of old is slipping away
Ua hala ke kualau The sea showers have passed
e kinai ai i nā pua o Kalaupapa and have quenched the flowers of Kalaupapa

5. Pua O Ke Aumoe – 5:16 – Words and music by Stephen Inglis ASCAP
A full moon bathes the islands under a midnight calm. The scent of Puakenikeni floats on the breeze. A cherished lover is evoked; pure intoxication…

Hanohano ka puakenikeni Glorious is the puakenikeni flower
i kaʻu ʻike o ke aumoe cherished in my mind during the midnight hours
E ko mai ʻana i ke ʻala an intoxicating scent arrives
e hoʻolana i ka puʻuwai making the heart float with lightness
ʻōlinolino kou mau manamanlima your fingers how they sparkle
O ka pā kōnane a ka mahina in the bright, shining moonlight
Haʻina ʻia mai ana ka puana Let the story be told
aloha kuʻu pua o ke aumoe of love for my cherished flower of the midnight hours

6. Kīkānia – 2:56 – Words & Music by Rev. Dennis Kamakahi ASCAP
There is an abundance of Kīkānia that grows in the low brushlands of Kalaupapa. It bears a red, orange, and sometimes green bulb the looks somewhat like a tomato. The prickly thorns on its side sometimes give one an itch. Like the songs of mischief written by Hawaiian composers long ago, this song talks of the workings of love.

 

KIKANIA
(He Mele Ma’i)
Words & Music by: Rev. Dennis D.K. Kamakahi, ASCAP
Copyright (c) 2011
 
 
Auhea wale ‘oe e ku’u ipo la , ka i’ini a ka pu’uwai . Where are you my sweetheart, the desire of the heart
Heaha e ka hana ‘o Kikania? Ke pi’i nei ko’u mane’o. What does Kikania do? I begin to start to itch.
 
CHORUS:
Lewa ‘iluna, Lewa ‘ilalo, Lewa me ka ‘awe o ka he’e Dangle above, dangle below, dangle like the tentacle of the octopus,
Lewa ‘iluna, Lewa ‘ilalo, Pa’a i ka hopu o ka lima. Dangle above, dangle below, stuck in the grasp of the hand.
 
Hu mai ke aloha no keia mea o ka pulu ‘ele’ele nui. The love swells forth for this thing of the big black bull.
Ua ho’opehu ‘ia ka ihe pololu e ka hana a ke aloha. The long spear is swollen by the workings of love.
 
Ha’ina ia mai ana ka puana o Kalaupapa i ka la’i, Thus ends the story of Kalaupapa in the calm,
Heaha e ka hana ‘o Kikania? Ke pi’i nei ko’u mane’o. What does Kikania do? I begin to start to itch.

 

Mana’o:

The humor of one kupuna on my trip to Kalaupapa in 1975 stands out in my memory. Kikinia is found in abundance on the plains of Kalaupapa. Kikinia has prickly thorns on its stalk and the fruit comes in a variety of colors like red, orange, green and is commonly strung into a lei. It is the poetic inference to love-making that made me laugh uncontrollably. The comparison between the tentacles of the octopus, the black bull, or the long spear all describe the instrument of love-making. Don’t touch the kikania or you’ll be smitten.

A song of love. From Bernard to Kalaupapa

9. Sunset of Kalaupapa – 4:01 – By Samson Kuahine
Born blind at birth, Kalaupapa resident Samuel Kuahine wrote this beautiful song of Kalaupapa’s sunset. Although he imagined how it would look like, he described beautifully in his love song what can only be seen by one’s soul. It became a popular song in the 1940’s when Harry Owens recorded it with his band. Royalties from this song were used to purchase musical instruments for the people of Kalaupapa.

SUNSET OF KALAUPAPA
Words and Music by: Samson Kuahine
 
 
The sunset of Kalaupapa
Smiles thru the evening rain
The tradewinds of Kalaupapa
Sing like an old refrain
 
There’s music of romancing
Moonlight and stars above
Your magic charms, your dancing
Fill every night with love
 
CHORUS:
My island of dreams
Means so much to me
When you’re in my arms
Sighing so tenderly
 
So hold me close, my darling
Kiss me as lovers do
The sunset of Kalaupapa
Will be a dream come true

Sitting on a shady bench in back of the Kalaupapa visitor’s quarters. Sunlight sparkles off of the water as the dolphins frolic across the bay.heaven on earth? Yep.

11. Hale Mohalu – 3:50 – Words and music by Bernard Punikai‘a ASCAP
Bernard‘s anthem for his beloved Hale Mohalu. Singing this takes me right back to my hanabata days.

12. Moloka’i Nui A Hina – 4:21 – Matthew Kane
No tribute to the island of Moloka’i would be complete without this rousing song for the love of the Friendly Island. Moloka’I, Child of Hina the Goddess of the Moon, is a special place to all who know and love her. It is a pride held deep within the soul of the ‘iwi, the bones of our ancestors. Take this pride and elevate it. Sing of the beauty of Hina’s child. Moloka’i no ka heke – Moloka’i the foremost.
