Incredibly kind mana‘o from Dr. Amy Stillman on my Anatomy of a Mele blog! Dr. Stillman is a notable Hawaiian music historian and will be replacing me at the helm as “guest interviewer” to interview yours truly! We’ve already selected the 2 songs (yes 2!) that we will be covering and should be a LOT of fun!
