Hu’s on First?

It’s so wonderful to be back home on Moloka`i after a summer of family and fun on the mainland. So Moloka`i Moments is back up and running. And here is a true Abbott and Costello moment from right here on the island.

My hula teacher was teaching a new song, very pretty with lovely choreography. Dear friend and hula sister, Rae, went up to her after the class to inquire about the music, so she could buy the CD. (We like to support our artists here rather than just duplicating CD’s. After all, they put their hearts and souls out there for us.)

“Who did this CD?” she asked.

“Whoevah,” replied my hula teacher.

“No, I mean, what is the name of the group, so I can get the music.”


“No, I really want to know.” Rae was genuinely puzzled by now.

“Here, I’ll write it down for you,” smiled our hula instructor.

She wrote Hū`eva. That’s the name of the group. And the album. After much laughter, the misunderstanding was no more. And Hū`eva is a fantastic Hawai`ian group. The name translates as “to sing or create on their own path.” You can find the CD at – click here.

  1. So enjoyed your “Hu’s on First?” story! Thanks for sharing the link to order the CD, which I just did. Can’t wait to get it … and can’t wait to rejoin you all when we, too, get “home” to Moloka’i! Taking hula lessons is on my list! 😉
