September 2nd, 1838, Birthday of Lili’uokalani

On Wiki Wiki Wednesday, a musical tribute to the music and songs of Hawai’i and the Pacific Islands, we celebrate the birth of Queen Lili’uokalani. Lili’uokalani ascended to the throne January 29th, 1891, after the death of her brother, King David Kalakaua, known as the Merrie Monarch, for his revival of the hula, surfing and other Hawaiian arts.  Queen Lili’uokalani was an accomplished author, composer and musician. She composed “Aloha ‘Oe,” or “Farewell to Thee,” a popular lover’s goodbye, which later became imbued with mourning for the loss of her country after the illegal overthrow of the Hawaiian kingdom. We keep the Queen and Hawaiian Kingdom in heart, in part through the music.
