Overview

The tender strains of the song welcome passengers pressed against the railing of the sleek steamship, eagerly awaiting their first glimpse of the paradise known as Hawai'i. The song and the islands will be forever etched in their memories.

This book chronicles Hawai'i's first major hit song outside of the islands. Composed in 1878 as a love song by the woman who would become Hawai'i's only ruling queen, the song made its debut in 1883 in San Francisco. Since then, Aloha 'Oe has become famous around the world largely through the efforts of Bandmaster Henry Berger, conducting thousands of concerts. Over the years, it has been immortalized in other songs, literature, plays, and movies. With each new medium, Aloha 'Oe remains an enduring favorite with its unforgettable melody.
