This song was composed by IZ’s dear friend, Leo Anderson Akana. IZ found it inspiring and wanted to record it. Jon de Mello decided that it was the perfect song and had the perfect addition… a recording of Hawaiians chanting from some of the observations of the 100th Anniversary of the overthrow of Queen Liliuokalani. E Ala E continues as an anthem to the Hawaiian people as they acquire proper recognition as the indigenous people of Hawaii.
E Ala E is available on IZ’s album of the same name!
