    My second entry, but I had to do this one. This is one of the oldest Hapa Haole songs, published in 1916. It was composed by Hawaiian Henry Kailmai, and has been performed by innumerable Hawaiian artists. I added some electric picking on my new Koa Flea, and also added a bit of electric piano for fun.

    Australia once belonged a long time ago to the Hawaiian islands.
    What??? it didn't well this aboriginal song has that Polynesian feel to it.
    But instead of singing of Carra Barra I sang of Kärkjärvi in Finland.
    Footage from an epic swim my wife did with the grandkids across the lake
    at the summer cottage.



    Kärkjärvi, Kärkjärvi, little star upon the lake,
    Guide me through the hours of darkness, keep me safely till I wake
    Piccaninnies' heads are nodding, drowsy crooning fills the air,
    Little eyes at last are closing, and the boat of dreams is there.
    Guide my boat across the waters, cross the waters still and deep,
    Light me with your little candle, safely to the land of sleep.
    Kärkjärvi, Kärkjärvi, little star upon the lake,
    Guide me through the hours of darkness, keep me safely till I wake

    Aloha, Seasonista!
    31 official videos so far and some 7 bonus songs. Yes, we had a great time watching as you hopefully had too.

    These came in newly:

    Joko: Tiny Bubbles
    Don Ho once again, this time impersonated by the one and only Joko McKenna! Was it fun? Well, listening to this with my big headphones and suddenly some more Jokos singing call and response harmonies, I felt like sitting in pub already having my 3rd beer and everybody is singing along – yes, this is fun and gave my a big smile in my face. Mahalo, Joko!

    cua94: Hokule’a, Star Of Gladness
    Originally by brother Iz now beautifully interpreted by sister Liz. Thank you for joining in, this was a sweet and soft performance, you did very, very well. Don’t be annoyed about unwanted attention (some of the best performers have some nasty haters in the net!) but be pleased about the wanted attention. We enjoyed this very much. Mahalo, Liz, Aloha!

    lelouden: Blue Lei
    Just beautiful! A beautiful song (thanks for the link), beautifully sung and played with some nice strumming and picking mixture on your gorgeous baritone. You captured the spirit so well! Your chords sound fine, Linda, you really did a marvelous job again. Mahalo!

    Demimondaine: You’re Welcome
    Aloha, Chelsea! What a treat on this OST fun song – and with the ukulele instead the orchestration we feel even more welcome! You sang it with verve and in good spirits so we enjoyed this very much. Mahalo!

    myrnaukulele: Haole Hula
    Wow, this was excellent, Myrna! Not only picking a wonderful song but doing this entertaining video with the Hula (did you synchronize the story the Hula dancers tell with the right part in the song really? Impressing!), then you dressed up so beautifully playing surrounded by your blooming flowers. Thank you very, very much for adding so much Aloha to this Season. Not to forget that you played and sang it so wonderful as you always do. Mahalo!

    Strumdaddy: Song Of Old Hawaii
    That’s a great song and you sure know how to play and to sing it in the grand old style! And wonderful setting btw! Your ukulele is very nice, it is good that you restored it. We have a Kumalae Gold Medal too (like Tiny Tim played) – in times when traveling was something only the upper class did, the big Hawaiian hotels gave one of these to every guest as a gift. Mahalo, strumdaddy!

    robinboyd: Banana Pancakes
    One of the nicest JJ songs – we’re glad your cold couldn’t keep you from your ukulele and bringing in this feel good tune. In spite of your slightly handicapped voice you did a very nice recording, Mahalo! Get well soon and thank you for being part of this Season. Aloha!

    ukuleledaddy: Hawaii
    Yeah, Sean’s in the house! We’re not surprised that you had the same idea as your twin in silliness – we really wonder how you came through the whole song despite your little video bomber, hahaha! Know what? Feeling beats overdrive! Very well performance, Daddy! We’re so happy that you made it to our Season although you had such a hard week. Mahalo, Sean! BTW: Rope binding ukulele – quite Hawaiian style. Hope to see you next year. Aloha!

    decaturcomp: Hawaii
    Same songs, completely different interpretation. Alan, you really made it to shift this song into a sad mood, we hope it’s only for artistic reasons, old friend. This was touching for sure. Thank you for joining in and hope to see you next year, Mahalo!

    Kia Flea or Kia Sorrento? Or Koa Sorrento, or...
    It's the songs, isn't it?

    Greetings,

    I am sure someone has done this, but my love for this song by Iz and his version led me to try it. Here it is "Somewhere Over the Rainbow / Wonderful World" as he covered it.


    Ciao
    Hey y'all. Putting the thumbs up. Collabs welcome if my files are able to be tweaked. Who knows. Might happen. Ciao.

    Dr. Creosote was so excited to hula for me whilst I sang. I hope you enjoy our version of the Hukilau Song.

    Still one day to go, we have still space left for more entries and bonuses – so c’mon everybody and join in!

    Three great new entries came up:

    Ginas uke: Somewhere Over The Rainbow / Wonderful World
    The 2nd Israel Kaʻanoʻi Kamakawiwoʻole song for the Aloha Season – this time the probably biggest ukulele hit ever. Gina, you did a fine version with sweet humming and singing – or as turtle drum better described: heartfelt and tender. Benissimo, grazie mille!

    bighatbulls: The Hukilau Song
    Aloha, Stephen, we’re sure when playing, singing and dancing with so much fun as you did all the 'ama'ama come a-swimmin' to you! We love this funny song (doesn’t everybody?) and you really did a great rendition! Plus shirts and leis and lava from the Kilauea! Great entry, Mahalo!
    PS: We thought, Mr. Creosote hadn’t survived this last wafer thin mint?

    jazzbanjorex: Making Love Ukulele Style
    Yeah, Rex, who’s needs Dino? Your version rocks with powerful singing and hot strumming your rope binding pineapple uke. And where did you find this little dancer? Excellent performance once again, we’re so glad to have you in our Season, Rex! Mahalo!
