For side one, “Ke Kolu,” which means "the third” in Hawaiian, the Hui Ohana featured Regina "Mama Tina" Kaapana as their lead vocalist. Not only do the listeners hear magnificent vocals, they experience the authentic folk music of the Island of Hawai‘i, with songs such as "My Lovely Flower" and "Waiakanaio" that guests at parties in the Hawaiian communities of Kalapana, Keaukaha, Pahala, or Miloli‘i could hear, but which probably had never been previously recorded. Popular opinion might limit the significance of Ledward Kaapana and the Hui Ohana to the popularity of the albums and the excitement of seeing the group perform in their most active years in Waikiki. However, the more significant accomplishment of Ledward and the Hui Ohana is not only musical virtuosity, but also the recovery and perpetuation of an oral tradition of rural folk music. In other words, Ledward Kaapana and the Hui Ohana were not only popular musicians, they were significant purveyors of Hawaiian culture.The cover of “Ke Kolu” contributes symbolically to the story of Ledward Kaapana and the Hui Ohana. Led, Nicky (Nedward), and Dennis, wearing 1970's vest suits worthy of Waikiki or Las Vegas, pose off-balance on lava rocks with the palm trees, the black sand beach, and the ocean of Kalapana's Ka‘imu Beach in the background. The picture tells viewers that these boys from Kalapana have made it in the entertainment Mecca of Waikiki. Their pose is off-balance as would be expected since they have worn white dress shoes to hike on a‘a lava and worn evening dress to what was the District of Puna's prime surfing site. Their pose also may represent their ambivalence in playing the music of down home garage parties for the tourists and the city fans of Hawaiian music. And while Led, Ned, and Dennis were at the height of their success, some issues may have been emerging. Almost hidden, framed in the "O" of Ohana, mother Tina seems to watch over her talented children, her lovely flowers.Time intensifies the power of this picture. The spectacular scenery we see is gone, covered by tons of lava from the volcanic eruption that began in 1983, covered the area in 1990, and is still spewing lava at the time of this writing. The lava flows not only killed the palm trees and covered the black sand beach, they also filled in all of Ka‘imu Bay and created a land mass much like that on which the performers in Ke Kolu stand which extends at least a quarter mile into what was formerly ocean.Tina Kaapana recorded two solo albums, but they were never reissued onto cassette or CD format. One or two of her singles may be on some of the Hana Olu reissues. But “Ke Kolu” is the main opportunity to hear her wonderful voice singing songs in Hawaiian which was her first language. Side two offers additional wonderful songs with Ledward, Nedward, and Dennis. Unfortunately “Ke Kolu” is not in print, but may be available from online web sites. It is also available on iTunes.
