Na Mele No Na Keiki - 1965

In 1965, two cousins, Mary Kawena Pukui and Alice Namakelua, focused their talents for composing Hawaiian music, on songs specifically for children.
The resulting Hawaiian language compositions for children were assembled in a memorable album by Hula Records called Na Mele Hawaii No Na Keiki.
Featured vocalists were Nina, Lani, & Lahela, the Rodrigues Sisters.
The Maile Serenaders, a studio group of musicians, backed them up.
Benny Kalama on ukulele, Sonny Kamahele on guitar, Jimmy Kaopuiki on bass, and Eddie Pang on steel guitar.
In this program, 50+ years later, well share this memorable music.
