Episode 6: Aaron Salā & Snowbird Bento

Aloha ʻohana and friends,

Earlier this year, we performed a few of our original compositions on ʻŌiwi TV’s new music series “Mele ma ka Lihiwai”. These songs include Haumea, Ka ʻUpu Aloha and Kiss Me Kuʻu Ipo.

We were also fortunate to have our host, Kīhei Nahale-a join in for a well-known mele, Ka Naʻi Aupuni. This time-honored mele will be featured in Project Kuleana 2, another upcoming musical collaboration between Kīhei Nahale-a, Sean Nāleimaile, and Kamakoa Lindsey-Asing.

Check us out this Friday, December 26th, 2014, and enjoy the gift of music and moʻolelo that we share with you this holiday season. Watch “Mele ma ka Lihiwai” on Oceanic Digital Channel 326 or online at

Na māua nō me ke aloha,
Na Snowbird Bento me Aaron Salā
