The Mele: Sonic Knowledge project will document the unique practices of the Haku Mele-the Hawaiian cultural practice of knowledge proliferation through song. By engaging a cohort of master Haku Mele and cultural experts, this project will provide new compositions of mele to be captured in educational resources in the form of audio recordings, video interviews of composers, and written curriculum on each composition to fully explain this traditional practice. The project team will engage the support of an audio engineer and videographer to guide the development of the project resources, which will be made freely available online.
