Album Notes
Ua Kō, Ua ʻĀina

In ʻāina, we are fulfilled. We are nourished.

There is a difference between ʻāina and land. Hawaiian scholar, David Malo, explained two categories of "land," as he and his Hawaiian contemporaries knew them in 1838. The first, "moku," refers to a landmass, an island, separated by the sea. The second, "ʻāina," is distinguished from "moku" by only one addition: people. In this simple comparison, Malo shows us that land and people are of one entity – the only union by which ʻāina is born. "Ua kō, ua ʻāina," then, not only refers to the fulfillment of a journey to a new destination, but also the peopling – the cultivation – of that new space.
The waʻa, "Makani Hou o Keauhou," after whom "Keauhou" was named, provided the inspiration for a journey of our own. In 2016, we boarded our waʻa with our first release. In 2017, we found ourselves navigating the currents of the open ocean. Now, in 2018, we begin to see our island rising from the sea. This metaphorical island is an intellectual space of renewal, founded upon the mele we have shared over the past three years.
This island, however, is only a moku. It needs you – the reader, the listener, the lover of mele – to be here, to inhabit and cultivate this place. We invite you to subscribe to the values of this space. We invite you to grow with us in our understandings of our practices – in our understandings of ourselves. We invite you to create ʻāina, the nourishment of our being.
As we arrive together, we realize this island is one of many. As others set sail for new islands, new spaces, ʻāina emerges. These intellectual spaces, whether it is mele or any of our many practices, are the fabric of our being. With each journey for new ʻāina, we expand our oceania of knowledge. In ʻāina, we are fulfilled. We are nourished. Ua kō, ua ʻāina.
