A young woman born and raised in Honolulu, traveled all the way to Paris, France, to find a new life.
But Hawaii followed her to France.
Eventually, her daughter wanted to learn hula, so Kilohana Kwock Silve, a trained hula practitioner already, taught her French daughter the hula.
More French women came, and more countries followed.
An elderly Frenchman brought her his cherished Hawaiian record collection and gave it to her for safekeeping.
Eventually, Kilohana packed it all up and brought it back home to Manoa, O’ahu, Hawaii.
Today, we’ll continue our mini-series, sharing another treasure that we’ve culled from the Kilohana Kollection, via the B-sides of rare 45rpm records.
