Mele o Protest Auana Aug 9th, 2012

Ever been to Hawai'i and been embraced by aloha, but felt a strong sense of unrest or anger? Today's show hopes to bring some of the reasons for that anger to light musically. We'll present songs of protest, some explicit, some couched in kaona, in which frustration and anger at the disenfranchisement of the Hawaiian from his or her own land and culture is expressed. Listen to Hapa, The Brothers Cazimero, Dennis Pavao and others express their love of the land, their anger at its use and misuse, and their desire for unity amongst Hawaiians in the struggle to retain their land, culture, and identity. Ua mau ke ea o ka aina. Oni pa'a.
