A PAGE OF NATIVE CHANTS OR OLI
OUs sung to the accompaniment of native instruments
Na Hala 0 Naue
Note: This oli is sung in unison by the singers to the accompaniment of uliulis,
I Aloha I Ke Ko A Ka Wai
Note: In singing this oli, the singer takes one deep breath which must be sustained to the end of the line. The wave
over the half notes indicates that the voice must produce that wavy effect characteristic of an oli.
Kona Hema
Note: The style of this oli is quite different from the preceding ones.
Liliuokalani
Note: This oli is sung to the accompaniment of the ipu (gourd) and sometimes the pahu (drum). Do not omit sing-
ing the grace notes
.
Liko Pua Kukui
Note : This mele is sung in the hula puili or the bamboo dance.
