1) “Hivinau” was recorded in the late 1940s and came from the historical document: Vintage Hawaiian Treasures, Volume Three – Tahitian Drums & Dances Performed by Toti’s Tahitians. Toti started in Tahiti and then moved to Honolulu, Hawaii, to perform at Don the Beachcomber’s there, later moving to Ft. Lauderdale where he performed at the Mai-Kai Restaurant until his retirement in 1982.
2) “E Huli Makou” was performed in the 1970s in London by the Hawaiian singer Nina Keali'iwahamana, whose last name means “Chief Who Speaks With Authority,” from her eponymous CD: Nina, arranged, conducted and produced by Jack DeMello. The liner notes say it is a hula by an unknown composer, from about 1930, but other sources say it was a mele composed in 1949 by hotel bellhop David Chung for a weekly floor show at the Kona Inn.
