The songs and performers:
Puka Mai Ka La I Kumukahi
A chant to greet the rising sun at Kumukahi.
- On Golden Sand
A new wedding song that invokes the beauty and romance of Maui's southern shores.
- Ua Lilinoe
Lilinoe is the misty rain goddess of Haleakala, the mountain on whose slopes Lei'ohu lives.
A visit to a fortune teller in Pa'ia gave Kahala these words of affirmation and the inspiration for this song.
- Ku'u Manu 'O'o
Inspired by the poignant call of the last Manu 'O'o in existence before its tragic extinction, the song is written from that bird's perspective, calling to a lover that no longer exists. The actual recording of the last Manu 'O'o's call is incorporated into the song.
- Shores of Hale'iwa
A trip to O'ahu's north shore and the charming town of Hale'iwa is a fond childhood memory for Robyn and Ginger.
- Kauoha Mai
A perfect expression of a woman's indignation at being treated callously. A "tita" chorus provides commentary as the story unfolds.
- Blue Paradise
Joni had the blues because surf conditions were junk, so she stayed at home and wrote this clever song with a bossa nova tempo.
- Pua Pakalana
(Emma Veary & Robyn Kneubuhl)
Robyn wrote this song for her grandmother, Nana Veary, and it's become a favorite of Robyn's mother, Emma.
- Aloha No O Waitapu
Lei'ohu wrote this song for her brother while he was stationed in Iraq. It calls him back to his home and family.
- Swamp Melody
(Born on the Bayou/The Old Man Down the Road/Susie Q - Ahumanu)
A fun, just-because number for those who loved and remember CCR; the swamp will never be the same!
- Pohaku Kaulana
Pamela pays tribute to the healing stones of Wahiawa, their former glory diminished but not forgotten.
Based on a chant from the Pele legend, this song speaks of Pi'ilani's ancestral home, Kalapana, on Hawai'i Island.
- Dolphin Song
This song commemorates the day the dolphins surrounded Ginni's kayak and brought back music to her soul.
- Pupu Hinuhinu
A sweet, soothing lullaby that both Ginger and Robyn often sang to their babies.
- 'Iao Valley Suite
A transplant from Brooklyn, Ayin found peace, wisdom and inspiration for her spoken word in Maui's sacred 'Iao Valley.
- Aloha 'Oe
Childhood memories and a fond farewell from the women of Wahine end our musical journey.
