track1-b.  E Maliu Mai  (Irmgard Farden ‘Āluli)

 

Ē Ku‘u Sweet Lei Poina‘ole / E Maliu Mai 7:21 (Emma De Fries / Irmgard Farden ‘Āluli)


These songs, E- Ku‘u Sweet Lei Poina‘ole (“My Sweet Unforgettable Lei”) and E Maliu Mai (“Hear My Call”), were among the first songs we played together. They immediately became our favorites and our most requested songs. These were defining moments for us, knowing that we were meant to be making music together.
