Synopsis: Soulful, hypnotic melodies accompanied by hand drums evoke legendary warriors and queens, the spirit of Pele, fertility rites, a longing for sea and sky, and more. Here are 32 authentic chants that take listeners back to the dawn of Hawaiian culture, each one a treasure of exotic beauty and undeniable power.

Book Description: Chant has been called the "soul" of the Hawaiian people. With no written language or history, they have used their mele, or chants, as vessels holding precious legends and wisdom for 100 generations. On Mele Oli, listeners will hear the best-loved chants of ancient Hawaii, lovingly preserved and handed down within one island family, masters of the mele form. Here are 32 authentic chants that take us back to the dawn of Hawaiian culture, each one a treasure of exotic beauty and undeniable power. Soulful, hypnotic melodies accompanied by hand drums evoke legendary warriors and queens, the spirit of Pele, fertility rites, a longing for sea and sky, and more. Mele Oil celebrates and perpetuates what may be Hawaii's richest legacy: its chants from everyday life.
