Once upon a time, there was a beautiful Farden family home in Lahaina named “Puamana”.
Irmgard Kealiiwahinealohanohokahao Puamana Farden was born on October 7, 1911, and raised within music-filled gatherings of family and friends.
In 1935, Irmgard composed “Puamana” at their home.
After performing and composing for years, she formed a group named, “Puamana” in 1974 with 2 of her daughters and a niece, recording 2 memorable albums in the 1980s.
“Puamana" is one of the 2015 Inductees into the Lifetime Achievement Awards of the Na Hoku Hano Awards.
