Day 8: Musical Advent Calendar 2018

Artist: Eddie Kamae and the Sons of Hawai’i
Title: Ho’onani i ka hale
Language: Hawaiian
Translation: It’s a cover of ‘Deck the Halls’ – the ever-helpful Google Translate came up with ‘Glorify the house’, which is quite sweet!

Hawaiian word for Christmas: Kalikimaka

This is a beautiful, laid-back version of a Christmas favourite, with some lovely guitar playing and a subtle twist on the original tune. Gorgeous! I can almost hear the waves lapping on to the beach…

From the 1978 album ‘Christmas Time’.

DJ Esperanto
