Ka Lā ʻŌnohi Mai O Haʻehaʻe (Wahine)

"Ua Awakea" is a composition of Lolokū that honors the land of Puna, particularly Cape Kumukahi where the sun rises in the most eastern point of all Hawaiʻi. The mele highlights three phases of the sun – "Kahikole," the early morning sun, "Kahikū," the mid-morning sun, and "Lolokū," most noted as "Kau ka lā I ka lolo," the noon day sun. The refrain is "Let us live forever for the sub has arrived." "All of Hawaiʻi is enlightened by the tranquil midday sun, for it is Awakea, it is noon!"
