Another blog to keep an eye on, 2012.

Here is another blog you might want to check out:


Related to our posts this morning of death announcements by Sam M. Nihipali which are very descriptive and seem almost more poetry than prose… Kuamoolelo just posted a number of kanikau, which are mele written at the death of someone dear that one feels much aloha for. From these kanikau you can perhaps get a deeper feel for the emotion the composer felt for the deceased, and also often times detailed biographical information as well.

By any means, check them out and see what you can see.
