I'm just listing several songs that were written between 2012 and 2020. Songs are about the Anahola areas of Mt. Kalalea, Anahola River and Bay. They have been home recorded for my family.
This song was written after our reunion on Oahu, 2012, at the beach house near Laie. I was so motivated by that reunion and felt compelled that a song had to be written about Anahola, even though there are a couple of songs about that area, duly recorded. The words came kind of easy because, keep in mind I literally "kissed the ground that I walked on", having grown up in the area and other places nearby.
Till this day, the roosters still crow in the early morning hours.
I logged into the internet (Google Earth) and had a top view of Anahola Road and it looked the same as when I was growing up. I scrolled down to street level and observed a lot of changes. Back to the top, again, I felt something should be written about this road. The "Y" still exists today.
Anahola-Our Home.....HE HAWAII AU.....I am proud to be a Hawaiian from Anahola
Latest song...not totally completed yet....I started it when we had our last reunion at Kumu Camp. My inspiration came from walking on the sand at Anahola Bay. Hopefully I will return so I can finish it.
