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 French-born daughter wanted to learn the 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 her his cherished Hawaiian record collection, and gave it to her for safekeeping. Eventually, Kilohana packed it all up and broght it back home to Manoa, O’ahu, Hawaii.
Today, we’ll resume our mini-series, now in our 4th summer of sharing even more of the treasures that we’ve culled from the Kilohana Kollection, in Volume 27.
For this episode, we’ll feature Waikiki and Bell Records 45-rpms!
