Fighter Jets escorting a Jetliner into Honolulu International Airport!

Fighter Jets escorting a Jetliner into Honolulu International Airport!

Here in Hawaii while being driven from Waikiki to downtown Honolulu in an UBER I noticed a huge jetliner being escorted by two fighter jets. I immediately started filming form the back seat for Hawaiian.com. After further research by television station FOX KHON2 News (who also featured this video) it was found that it is our military doing anti-terrorism practice.

US Military remaining well trained and vigilant to protect us all. I can share that my first impression was utter shock thinking it was a commercial airline being escorted due to a huge emergency like a terrorist. It was very heartening to find out that it was a military exercise.

Thank you to all those who have served and serve in our military to protect freedom at home and abroad. Mahalo from our Hawaiian.com Ohana and we’re so glad it wasn’t an airline!

Hawaiian Music – Ukulele and Hula

Hawaiian music, ukulele and Hula. It all goes together. But there were times when it was forbidden to Hula and even to speak hawaiian. Most of us associate hawaiian music with vacation, beach, palm trees and coconuts. But hula is way more than that. Every movement has its meaning and hula tells a story.

The ukulele was brought to the islands in 1878, by a Portugese immigrant.

Kamaka

The instrument he played was called “braginho,” the Portuguese name for the four-string instrument, the natives renamed it “ukulele,” the Hawaiian reference to the flea suggested by the jumping motion of the hand in strumming.

Since then the ukulele and the hula have been inseparable, and it has become the symbol of Hawaii to people all over the world.

In 1916, Samuel K. Kamaka, then a young man, who had returned from his travels on the mainland as a musician, joined with friends in making ukuleles for personal use. This gave rise to his first and only business venture which he started in his home in Kaimuki…”

Feel free to listen to our playlist with hawaiian music! Enjoy and Aloha!

live aloha poem

Aloha Poem – Poem from Hawaii

I’ve sailed from here to Molokai,
fished the Kona coast.
But the laughter in the air,
is what I love the most.

The sound of gentle breezes,
the rhythm of the waves.
I could walk this beach forever,
and dream my life away.

I’ve felt the seven pools of wonders kiss,
and I can’t believe there’s anything as beautiful as this.
In paradise,
and Hawaiian eyes.

The spirit of our native land,
God has heard our prayers.
And blessed us with the beauty,
with the magic in the air.

The surf across the water,
the sounds of slide guitar.
When the dancers do their dance of love,
then we know who we are.

A people only seeking natures best.
One place on the planet,
where the sands of time have blessed.
In Paradise and in your Hawaiian eyes.

Live Aloha!

Hula in Hawaii – History of Hula

The history of Hula in Hawaii: Ke `Uli`uli

Hula dancers use many diffent implements in their art. This `uli`uli, a type of dance rattle, is in a style popular during the monarchy era. It uses a coconut shell base, which was comon before the introduction of the la`amia (Spanish Tree Gourd). The lauhala handle is lashed with `aha (coconut senit). In ancient times stones were used in the rattle, but the shot-like seeds of the introduced ali`ipoe (cana lily) were prefered by King Kalakaua’s day. The iridescent tail feathers of the moa kane (rooster) were a popular decorative item. Prior to the arrival of Capt. Cook, tapa was not much used on the `uli`uli. They were decorated with simple pompons made from the excess leaf used in the handles, with the pelts of birds, or more elaborately, by tying feathers to a flat disk fashioned of the upper part of the leaf handle and `ie`ie vine.

After contact with European culture, however, “artificial pelts” came into vogue and native or imported feathers often were sewn to tapa and then attached to the instrument.

In ancient times and into the monarchy period, the `uli`uli was generally used as a single instrument. After the beginning of the 20th century, however, using two `uli`uli became popular.
