Review Hula Songs Sing-Along Program

www.UkuleleMeleOnMaui.com

June Jones visiting from Arizona commented how excited she was to take ukulele classes again from Mele Fong after many years. Photo shows Richard Tom (Mele’s husband), Mele Fong, and June Jones at the start of the monthly “Sing-Along with Mele Fong” series at Kaunoa Senior Center on Maui.

“Singing these songs brought back memories of my sister learning hula when we were growing up,” commented one lady after the Hula Songs program. June Jones visiting from Arizona commented how excited she was to take ukulele classes again from Mele Fong after many years.

Twenty-three people signed up for my monthly Sing-Along with Mele Fong Series – Hula Songs on Thursday, April 5, 2018 at Kaunoa Senior Center for adults 55 and better on Maui.

During the new “Hawaiian history moment of the month” I talked about April 1-7 being the 55th Annual Merrie Monarch Festival, a week-long event in Hilo, Hawai’i that features an internationally acclaimed hula competition and more dedicated to the memory of King David Kalākaua, also known as the “Merrie Monarch” for his fun loving ways and support of Hawaiian music and hula. Read more by clicking here.

The “Sing-Along with Mitch Miller” format of projecting the song lyrics and ‘ukulele chords on a screen at the front of the room, and having my husband provide the u-bass line to fill in the lower tones to the higher pitched ‘ukulele worked great! New for this program I changed the graphic layout, background color, and font to Arial after learning this font is the easiest to read at a distance. These changes were in addition to a slide showing the strum graphic and ukulele chord shape images before each song. We continued the routine of learning how to pronounce any Hawaiian words in the songs, the story behind each song whether it was Hawaiian or not, and playing each song twice to reinforce what we learned.

We sang all ten songs that we had prepared for the 75-minute program including Hawai’i Aloha (in the Hawaiian language) that is traditionally sung to end a public event in Hawai’i. Here is the song list with my unique ‘ukulele strums:

  1. Keep Your Eyes on the Hands – I Wanna Rest Strum and 4And Strum.
  2. Papalina Lahilahi – ‘Ōlapa Strum.
  3. Hula Lolo – I Wanna Rest Strum and 4And Strum.
  4. Ka Ulu Wehi O Ke Kai – Latin Strums.
  5. Hukilau Song – Hum Ding-Ah Strum.
  6. E Huli Makou – ‘Ōlapa Strum.
  7. My Little Grass Shack – I Wanna Rest Strum.
  8. Sophisticated Hula – Boom Shaka I Wanna Strum.
  9. Lovely Hula Hands – I Wanna Rest and 4And Strum.
  10. Hawaii Aloha – Morse Code Strum.

History Behind the Merrie Monarch Festival

“Hula is the language of the heart, therefore the heartbeat of the Hawaiian people” — King David Kalākaua.

www.UkuleleMeleOnMaui.com

The 55th Annual Merrie Monarch Festival is April 1-7 in Hilo, Hawaii. The week-long event features an internationally acclaimed hula competition and is dedicated to King David Kalakaua, a patron of the arts.

This year marks the 55th Annual Merrie Monarch Festival, a week-long event in Hilo, Hawai’i that features an internationally acclaimed hula competition, invitational Hawaiian arts fair and grand parade dedicated to the memory of King David Kalākaua, also known as the “Merrie Monarch.” The festival is held annually during the week after Easter, this year being April 1-7.

The Hawai’i Island Chamber of Commerce began the festival in 1963 to perpetuate, preserve, and promote the art of hula and the Hawaiian culture. Five years later, a community non-profit organization was formed “that honors the legacy of King David Kalākaua, who inspired the perpetuation of our traditions, native language and arts.”

Kalākaua was the seventh and last king of the Hawaiian Nation. He was elected in 1874 and reigned until he died in 1891. During his day, Hawaiian beliefs and traditions were suppressed after many years under Christian missionary teachings. Ancient Hawaiians had no written language and used chants and hula to record such things as genealogy and to pass on stories. Kalākaua was a patron of the arts, especially music and dance, and advocated for a renewed sense in all things Hawaiian. At Kalākaua’s royal coronation in 1883, there were public displays of hula for the first time since the missionaries’ arrival in 1820. In 1886, Kalākaua celebrated his 50th birthday known as the Silver Jubilee with two-weeks of festivities including chant and hula dancers performing in public. Every year the Merrie Monarch Festival continues what King David Kalākaua started by hosting a week-long festival to show Hawaiian cultural pride is alive and well in Hilo, Hawai’i.

Kalākaua was also a supporter of ‘ukulele playing. In 1879, three fine wood craftsmen from Madeira, an island off Portugal, immigrated to Hawai’i and brought with them the braguiha or machete that evolved into what we know today as Hawai’i’s official instrument, the ‘ukulele.

‘Ukulele players can keep Hawaiian music alive by learning Hawaiian songs and stories the Ukulele Mele Way by clicking here.

 

Singers and ‘ukulele players are invited to my monthly “Sing-Along with Mele Fong” series with the theme of hula songs in honor of the Merrie Monarch Festival on Thursday, April 5 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon at Kaunoa Senior Center in Maui. Write me for information.

Serenaders Perform at Richard Hoopii Celebration of Life

www.UkuleleMeleOnMaui.com

The Hawaiian Serenaders performed at the Richard Hoopi’i Celebration of Life on March 24.

We were surprised to see our picture in the Sunday, March 25 newspaper showing our performance on stage for Hawaiian music legend Richard Hoopi’i’s Celebration of Life held on Saturday, March 24 at the Maui Memorial Gymnasium in Wailuku. We sang “I’ll Remember You” written by Kui Lee and after our performance the MC Alaka’i said it was very appropriate. We were honored just to be able to play and thrilled to have our picture in the newspaper from all the entertainers that performed during the non-stop lineup for 6-hours. Hundreds of people attended to pay respects to the Hoopi’i family. Matt Thayer of The Maui News was the photographer.

Richard Hoopi’i was a master falsetto singer and ukulele player known for his voice, big smile, and generous spirit. He died March 3 at home in Kahakuloa, He was 76.  In 1996, Richard and his brother Solomon Hoopii were named National Heritage Fellows by the National Endowment for the Humanities. My husband and I were fortunate to see the Hoopi’i brothers receive their award at Lisner Auditorium in Washington D.C. Solomon died in 2006 and we also attended his service in Maui (we moved from Maryland to Maui in 2000).

Maui Uke Fest 2011

Mele danced hula as the two Rich’s performed at the Maui Ukulele Festival in October 2011

In October 2011, the two Rich’s (my Rich and Uncle Richard Hoopi’i) performed on stage during the Maui Ukulele Festival at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center. What an honor for Rich to back-up Uncle Richard on his ukulele-bass. When Uncle Richard started singing the song Puamana, I couldn’t stand it and jumped up on stage to dance the hula to their music. We have fond memories of playing music and talking story with Uncle Richard and his wife Ululani. When the Hoopi’i’s invited us to their grandson’s 1-year baby luau, we felt privileged to be included as part of their ohana (family).

“Mele and Richard, Thank you for the joy you have given me,” wrote Gail Ainsworth in the autographed copy of her book Maui Remembers A Local History which she presented to me before the program. Gail is a retired librarian and her book is in its 10th printing. “You just extended my life by a year; singing is when words aren’t enough,” commented John Murphy after the program.

We continued the routine of learning how to pronounce any Hawaiian words in the songs and playing each song twice to reinforce what we learned.

We sang eight of the ten songs that we had prepared for the 75-minute program including Hawai’i Aloha (in the Hawaiian language) that is traditionally sung to end a public event in Hawai’i. Here is the song list with my unique ‘ukulele strums:

Review March 2018 Ukulele Workshop

www.UkuleleMeleOnMaui.com

A couple from California came to my 47th Ukulele Strumming Workshop on March 10, 2018 at the Bailey House.

A couple from California came to my 47th ‘Ukulele Strumming Workshop on March 10, 2018 from 10 – 11 a.m. at the Bailey House in Wailuku. This brought the total to 646 participants since I began teaching these workshops at the museum on July 14, 2012.

The couple just happened to be touring the museum the day before when they saw my Workshop poster. They were excited to meet me because they had watched my ‘ukulele lesson video on “Goodnight, Irene” on my YouTube channel. They play in a group and entertain at senior facilities in California. We had a private lesson for two since the other three people who had also pre-registered for the workshop did not show up.

We played the following songs with 6 different ‘ukulele strums taught by no one else:

  1. Horse with No Name – 2-chord song with Chalang-alang Strum.
  2. Lion Sleeps Tonight – 3-chord song with I Wanna Rest Strum.

Review Paniolo Sing-Along Songs 2018

www.UkuleleMeleOnMaui.com

Twenty nine people signed up for the February 22 Sing-Along with Mele Fong series – Paniolo Songs.

“I’m going to extend my vacation on Maui just so I can complete your ukulele class,” said Patricia Hans from New York whom we first met at my February 10 Ukulele Strumming Workshop at Kaunoa. At the workshop Patricia told me she had signed up for my Ukulele Strumming 101 class from February 12 – March 12 at Kaunoa. Patricia’s original travel plans had her leaving Maui before class ended, but after experiencing how much fun it is to learn to play ukulele from me, she chose to extend her trip. What a great testimonial!

Patricia was one of twenty-nine people signed up for my monthly Sing-Along with Mele Fong Series – Paniolo Songs on Thursday, February 22, 2018 at Kaunoa Senior Center for adults 55 and better. Paniolo is the Hawaiian word for cowboy, so we sang a mix of Hawaiian cowboy and American cowboy songs. The “Sing-Along with Mitch Miller” format of projecting the song lyrics and ‘ukulele chords on a screen at the front of the room, and having my husband provide the u-bass line to fill in the lower tones to the higher pitched ‘ukulele worked great!

New this year for the “Hawaiian history moment of the month” I talked about the significance of February 23, 2003, the date a flatbed trailer carrying an enormous bronze statue of Ikua Purdy roping a steer was pulled into the Parker Ranch Shopping Center in Waimea on the Big Island. In 1908, Purdy stunned the American West at the World Championship in Wyoming by winning the steer-roping contest. Read more about Ikua Purdy, the first Native Hawaiian voted into the National Rodeo Cowboy Hall of Fame by clicking here.

New this year I also added an additional slide showing the strum graphic and ukulele chord shape images for each song. We continued the routine of learning how to pronounce any Hawaiian words in the songs and playing each song twice to reinforce what we learned.

We sang ten of the eleven songs that we had prepared for the program including Hawai’i Aloha (in the Hawaiian language) that is traditionally sung to end a public event in Hawaii. Here is the song list with my unique ‘ukulele strums:

  1. Paniolo Country – Hum Ding-Ah Strum.
  2. Ulupalakua – ‘Olapa Strum.
  3. Could I Have This Dance – 2 Waltz Strums.
  4. Hey Good Lookin’ – Hum Ding-Ah Strum.
  5. Kaula ‘Ili – 2 Waltz Strums.
  6. Ring of Fire – Hum Ding-Ah Strum.
  7. Wahine Holo Lio – Pick in 4/I Wanna Rest Strums.
  8. King of the Road – I Wanna Rest Strum.
  9. Country Roads – Hum Ding-Ah Strum.
  10. Hawaii Aloha – Morse Code Strum.
