Written by Walter Kuikahi, a bandmate of Sam Liʻa Kalāinaina’s in the Waianuhea glee club, the song upholds the name of Waipiʻo. For Eddie Kamae, this song was a reminder of the legacy and kuleana that Sam passed on to him. It inspired his work with his own band, the Sons of Hawaiʻi, in keeping old music traditions alive. Sam shared with Eddie so Eddie could share with us.
