ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
1 "No Moloka'i He Moku Kapu"
Ka'iulani wrote this chant in October 2007 on an airplane flying home from E Pili Kakou in California. It is in honor of the very sacred Island of Moloka'i.
EnglishTranslation also by Ka 'iulani:
"Sacred Molokai" By Victoria Ka‘iulani Visiko
Here is the sacred land
Here is the Island of Moloka‘i
The stars cast their glow upon it
The mana shines bright
Listen to the wind tell its story
The fragrance of the flower shares passion
The love spreads around the world
The Hula will perpetuate for all
Precious love may you hear my call
Beloved Moloka‘i bring me back to thee.
Tell the story of Sacred Moloka‘i
Copyright October 2007

EnglishTranslation also by Ka 'iulani:
Here is the Island of Kaua‘i " by Victoria Ka‘iulani Visiko
Here is the Island of Kaua‘i
Beautiful is the land, Kaua‘i
Welcoming home to visitors
In search of calm
In search of spirit
Here is the Island of Kaua‘i
Tell the refrain of the story
The Island of Kaua‘i is indeed the best
