This group of skilled sisters will appear with their musicians and sing and hula at a concert with the Hawaii County Band [Bana Kalana o Hawaii] on Friday, December 20th, and at the Naniloa Hotel, Hilo, on Saturday, December 21, while being broadcast on KHBC.

Beginning from the left are the sisters: Hattie, Carrie Leialoha, Charlotte, Annie Lana and Bella Luana. Carrie Leialoha and Annie Lana are twins and are playing special.

[Anyone have any information on this musical family? Charlotte Bohling wrote a regular column for the Hoku o Hawaii reporting the news from Kona.]
