3:00PM-5:00PM Hula Auana “Kauai Lana I Ke Kai”
This mele by Robert Cazimero sings the praises of the Garden Isle, Kauai. A small group of us took a trip to Kauai in 2020 to escape the craziness of Covid and to hopefully compose new mele for Hula. That week away yielded so many wonderful songs. This is one of my favorites.
