From Kuana Torres Kahele’s MUSIC for the HAWAIIAN ISLANDS vol.3 Maui CD
A mele ho’ohanohano paying tribute to Nā Wai ‘Ehā known as The Great Four Waters of Maui. It celebrates the unblocking of these streams crucial to Maui families and small farmers. For generations, Maui sugarcane companies controlled and diverted fresh water flow to over half of Maui’s residents by cutting continuous flow and crippling Kalo wetlands. Their selfish actions also led to the depletion of crucial ground water resources. In commemoration of the 2014 reunification of the rivers and in celebration of a victory for Maui’s people after decades long battle, I felt moved to compose this song. As tears of joy flow, so do the famed waterways once again.
