That's because it's easier for those of us on the West Coast to go to the islands and become infected by the Ki Ho'alu bug.


Makes me wonder how many more participants there might be from Japan if TaroPatch.net could be translated into Japanese.

Aloha e Craig,

I think the large number on the West Coast is partially reflective of the "Economic/Brain Drain" phenomenon, i.e., the out-migration of islanders from Hawai`i for economic reasons and job opportunities.

I speak from my perspective: a lot of us island baby boomers were exposed to the Hawaiian Renaissance musicians like slack key artists Gabby and Aunty Alice Namakelua while in high school. The duo groups, Keola and Kapono (Beamer) and Cecelio and Kapono,were also in their heydey big back then.

Significant numbers of us went away for school on the mainland and got "stuck" out here for various reasons, including jobs, marriage to mainlanders, and opportunities for upward mobility.

Now many of us are heading for retirement, if not already there, with more discretionary time to pick up on activities of the heart, especially Hawaiian music. You can take an islander out of the islands, but you can't take the islands out of him/her.

At last month's SoCal `Ukulele Festival, my husband taught a slack key workshop(and an Aunty Alice Namakelua song); a sizable number of his students were Hawai`i ex-patriates who fit the "profile" I've described. Of course, as sizable was the number of mainlanders who just fell in love with slack key and wanted to learn more.

The Aloha and enthusiasm for slack key is contagious, and it is gratifying to see that so many on the West Coast, former islanders and mainlanders, are catching the slack key fever.

Me ke Aloha,
Aunty D

We do not really have that information. Prior to adding the city/region field in the profiles, we did not collect the information at all. The city/region is a broad classification so some Hawai`i residents choose to include their home island, others include their city, while others do not specify.

Aloha Andy,
Next upgrade, please consider capturing as a boolean whether a member has roots in the islands. There would be no rules for indicating 'yes' (self-identification is a bit more p.c.), but the general idea is one born and/or raised in the islands.

It is always most interesting to me where the keiki o ka 'aina crowd ends up.

Hi Ted,

I will look into adding that at a later date. BTW, I was just enjoying your He Aloha No `O Honolulu again. Sounds great!
