These mele carry stories of place, time, and people belonging to the ʻāina of the West Maui mountains.

This volume was edited by performers and composers Nicholas and Zachary Lum. It was published by the North Beach–West Maui Benefit Fund, in collaboration with Kamehameha Publishing.

Mele Huliāmahi Maui

Join musical trio Keauhou and hosts Cody Pueo Pata and Lance Collins for this special broadcast of Mele Huliāmahi, mele for contemporary stories of aloha ʻāina. Brought to you by Kāhuli Leo Leʻa and Kanaeokana, this episode shares mele and moʻolelo reflecting aloha ʻāina successes and struggles on Maui, from cane burning to shoreline access, and from sewage pollution to water diversion. As community support for aloha ʻāina has gained momentum in the last decades, community groups, families, and individuals have joined to huliāmahi—to stand for ʻāina and the Kānaka who live by its values.
