  George Naope's Chants of Hawai'i (CD#181)


  Includes extensive liner notes describing the two major types of Hawaiian chanting. Please be advised that this is a historical project and not a commercial release, many of the tracks are a minute or less in length. Nevertheless, for Hula Kahiko there is nothing more authentic than this. Includes examples of kepakepa, olioli, ho`ouweuwe and ho`aeae styles as well as himini on the final tracks.
These recordings are from major collections of audio material dating back to 1923. Anthropologist Helen H. Roberts traveled to isolated areas of Kaua`i and Hawai`i to record Hawaiians known for their chanting. The contents of this archive were chosen from the collections of historical sound recordings, manuscripts, and photographs from The Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum. Tracks 35-48 were made from the Ellis Collection, the major collection of early 20th Century recordings on 78-rpm discs housed in the Bishop Museum Archives donated by Paul Ellis in 1966. Reviews:
