Mapu Mau Ke 'Ala
This upcoming weekend my hula sisters will be dancing this song below at one of our hula sisters celebration of life services. The song (Mapu Mau Ke' Ala by Kekelani Ako...) is inspired by a dear friend who had passed on, but she shall never be forgotten"
The lyrics translated means:
Intensely sweet scent blows hither, Inviting me to draw near. Where are you, my beauty, a flower to be cherished? Oh fragile ginger blossom You beckoned me to dally there. Drenched in rain we found delight in the grove. The image of the beloved blossom has left. But the refreshing scent still lingers on.
