    Default Pua Olena - Lim Family

    I tried to do some research but the results don't match my memory.

    If you know or remember, please correct me.

    Pua Olena is a song best remember by the Lim Family.

    When I looked it up, the original album it was on was from 2005.

    However, I recall hearing it on the radio back in the early 1980s. And it was a female voice, IIRC, sounded very much like Lorna Lim.

    Was the song Pua Olena recorded by someone else? And played on the radio? Or is my 2005 recorded date wrong?

    Many Hawaiian songs were recorded by many people. Pua Olena was also sung by Auntie Genoa and Loyal Garner. But their version wasn't what I recall from the radio.

    You did not hear wrong. The Lim Family had several albums and this is the one that has the song in question. I don't think the album is in print anymore but you probably can find a vinyl or tape copy somewhere...

    From Discogs....
