Got this weeks Billy V Weekly Hawaiian Playlist on the blog. I put this together for people that are not sure what songs from Hawaii to listen to; so I've got my list that I put up weekly. I usually put 10 songs on it but added 17 this week because of "May Day" is coming up this weekend. Here in the islands it's very well known that "May Day is Lei Day in Hawaii"! So 15 of the 17 songs either have to do with flower lei or a song that has to do with May Day which is on Sunday; so all of the festivities at elementary, intermediate and high schools are either on Thursday or Friday.
Dan Cooke had fun as he went on "Facebook LIVE" this morning on Sunrise; Maunalua did the same thing a couple of nights ago when Kahi Kaonohi posted a video of Maunalua playing music at Kani Ka Pila Grille in Waikiki, and someone felt like dancing hula! That is classic Hawaii in action...
Kuana Torres-Kahele enjoys playing a lot of Hawaiian music, but occasionally teaching hula as well; the Na Hoku Hanohano Award winner is on the road in Barcelona, Spain. You wouldn't know it just by listening to the languages that the ladies in the video speak; at this halau there are ladies from Russia, Italy, Holland, Portugal, Norway and of course Spain.
We showed another video from his travels; No, that's not the rocking chair hula. Kuana's caption on this video says "Spain isn't ready for our big Hawaiian butts!" BTW: That video has 12,000 views...
