Na Mele O Hawai'i, March 11, 2021: Featuring a visit with kumu Kaliko Beamer-Trapp

This week, we pick back up where we (accidentally) left off in our exploration of mele (songs) studied in the virtual course, Papa Mele Hawai'i, taught by kumu Kaliko Beamer-Trapp through his website, 'Ōlelo Online. DJ Beth has been participating in this virtual class since last summer, where they study a song each week to assist in learning the Hawaiian language. Our nice long conversation is featured just after the start of the second hour. Mahalo e Kumu Kaliko!

You're welcome and thanks for asking. I'll make a point of posting future playlists once I find how to do it on the website rather than in the comments.
