My Ohana, My Hoaloha
From Plank Road Publishingby Karl Hitzemann
Your students get to sing, whistle, and play the ukulele while performing the song "My Ohana, My Hoaloha." The song begins with the kids singing. On the repeat, the ukuleles take over. A rhythmic pattern is written out for your players, but if they'd like to be more creative, they can strum freely to the beat of the song. On the full performance and accompaniment tracks, we have a ukulele playing freely as a guide. There are only three chords used – C6, G, and F. While playing their ukuleles, your students can whistle the melody until the singing resumes. If playing and whistling/singing proves to be too much for your group, you can divide them up, with some playing their ukes and others providing the whistling/singing. If you don't have a lot of strong whistlers, you could have them sing the melody on "loo," or just feature the ukulele players. There are many options. (from Music K-8, Vol. 28, No. 5)
