Bob Marley and UB40. Does Hawaii have singers and song writers?
Oh My Yes!
So, (I'm guessing here) "ho'okani" works better than "hīmeni" here because "make music" is a better translation than just"sing?" (Feedback welcome, because this IS just a guess)
I think you are right. Hīmemi is sing (therefore vocal); play at the concert implies instruments.
Well yeah, I mean the tramslation here is play not sing
