26th June 2015: Lena Machado – Kauoha Mai

Language – Hawaiian

Translation – The Keyhole Hula (again, I am not sure if this is a direct translation)

How lovely is this?  Some fabulous vocal gymnastics going on, which, combined with that beautiful guitar sound, makes this a gorgeous and evocative tune.  Love it!   There is an interesting blog here (https://amykstillman.wordpress.com/2010/06/08/playlist-songs-of-lena-machado-introduction/) that tells us a little more about Lena MacHado and the distinctive yodelling-style of singing that she utilised.
