  1. Can you tell me the background of the song Kaleohano by Louis Moon Kauakahi. Was it he who lived in Hilo and wrote the song about Keaukaha? Or was he telling the story about someone else who lived there? Why did he compose it? What were his thoughts and motives for writing it? I don’t have the CD so do not have any liner notes to tell me about the writing of that song.

    Anything you can tell me about it would be very much appreciated.

    sincerely, Judy Partridge
