Keali‘ika‘apunihonua Ke‘ena A‘o Hula (Wahine)

In 1959, composer Alice Namakelua stayed with Senator Francis M. F. Ching and his wife Ruth at their home in Kalāheo, Kauaʻi. Hala was in season, and everyday Aunty Alice made and wore the scented lei hala. This song recalls her four-and-a-half-month stay there while teaching classes in hula, singing, and ʻukulele.
