A young woman born and raised in Honolulu, traveled all the way to Paris, France, to find a new life.
But Hawaii followed her to France. Eventually her daughter wanted to learn hula, so Kilohana Kwock Silve, a trained hula practitioner already, taught her French daughter the hula. More French women came, and more countries followed. An elderly Frenchman brought Kilohana his cherished Hawaiian record collection and gave it to her for safekeeping. Eventually Kilohana packed it all up and brought it back home to Manoa, Oahu, Hawaii.
Today, we’ll continue our mini-series, with even more of the treasures that we’ve culled from the Kilohana Kollection, in Volume 16.
For this episode, we’ll feature Ed Kenney.
Today, 57 years later, we’ll share this 1960 recording.
