Punahou School / Buff 'n Blue Together - Luau Oli

Project Overview

Punahou’s Kumu, Kimo Keaulana, kicked off the Punahou Alumni Virtual Luau show with this beautiful oli (translated below). The video was one of many pre-recorded packages inserted into the live show.

I inhale the breath of blossoms
That is borne on the edges of the breeze of the upland,
It is the wind that blows from the sea
That has brought the fragrance of the lowlands
To blend with sweetness of the plain (or school) here.
Puʻu o Mānoa is cloaked in the light of the sun!
Come! There is no stranger in the familiar placesby the waters of Kapunahou,
Come! Come!
There is love here. . .
