Henehene Kou Aka by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole. A favorite all over Hawaii ne we love playing this song and wanted to cover it to share with our friends & family the beauty and magic of the Hawaiian language in this jamming tune! This song, Henehene Kou Aka, translated to “your laughter is contaigious” is about a couple riding a trolly around to different places where they always have a good time!
We teamed up with Rick Jichaku, owner of Hilo Ukulele & Guitar Shop on Ukulele, and Matt Spencer on the bass.
Thank you so much to Alana Mirror & Matty Malone Jennings for the videography!

Willie K., William Kahaialii, is one of Hawaii’s most gifted musicians, spreading the joy of Hawaiian music, aloha, and more around the globe. He has also donated his time and talents to help many nonprofits and charitable organizations raise money for their needs. The last time Vern and I saw him perform was at the Grand Naniloa Hotel a few months ago to help raise funds for the Pacific Tsunami Museum, and he brought the house down.
Even now, as he powers through the difficult journey of radiation and chemotherapy for lung cancer, he takes time each day to make a video of encouragement and hope – for his loving fans and those on a similar path.
His family, friends, and Maui Tribe Productions, LLChave set up a GoFundMe account to help with Willie’s medical expenses, and donations of any size will be gratefully appreciated.https://www.gofundme.com/willie-k-cancer-fund. Please consider sharing this post with your friends.
Thank you, Willie K., for all the beautiful music. We look forward to hearing your Hana Hou.

I just want to say Thank you to all the women who are kind, and sweet and sharing even through all the crap and lack of recognition. I SEE YOU!!! I see the women who watch quietly in the shadows while the men are all too comfortable telling us what to do. I HEAR YOU women as you turn and shift the energies through the other dimensions creating your tactics of raising the vibrations and quieting the loudest of arrogance!!! (FINALLY!!! Shut the fuck up you arrogance!) THANK YOU!!! For being the Strong Silent Spiritual Warriors you ARE! Even when other women are shunning you for what ever reason, and you carry on without complaint, because YES you are that strong! And the message is clear, this world has gone far too long with out a Mother’s touch, so now a few spankings may be in order! lol With grace and ease, love and aloha of course as we do! Thank you! Women! I thank YOU!!! You are the carriers of the new vibrations far and wide, even when others drop that vibration you lift it up and keep going, and for that I thank you! And for the men who ARE supportive, I thank you too:) Keep up the good work:)
