Recording Hawaiian music with Punahou School third Graders and teachers 11/20/94 tape 1

This video is raw footage of Punahou School third graders and teachers recording Hawaiian songs on November 20, 1994. Eddie Kamae explains to the children why he asked to record their voices. The children sing Hawaiian songs with their teachers playing guitar, ʻukulele, pakini (a bass made out of a broom stick handle and a bucket or wash tub), and an ipu heke. Some of the songs they sing include "ʻEkolu Mea Nui," "Ka Naʻi Aupuni," "E Aloha i ka ʻĀina" (a chant), and several other songs. The teachers are Hattie Phillips, Malia Ane, and Sarah Stoddard.
