 WINDWARD SUNSET IN THE PARK PAYS TRIBUTE TO BELOVED
   ISLAND SONGWRITER, IRMGARD ALULI

           On Sunday, October 6, Windward Sunset in the Park audiences will be treated to a special viewing of “Puamana,” a 35-minute intimate composition of one of Hawaii’s best-loved and most prolific songwriters, Irmgard Farden Aluli.  Auntie Irmgard, as she was affectionately known, was part of the Farden family, an accomplished musical family that continues to contribute prodigiously talented island performers.

            “Puamana” was produced by Auntie Irmgard’s niece, filmmaker Meleanna Aluli Meyer.  The 35 mm film was shot on the island of Oahu and Maui and celebrates a family and lifestyle that embraced music, togetherness and simple joys. 

             Auntie Irmgard was raised by the sea in Lahaina, Maui, with her twelve brothers and sisters.  Though she passed away last year at the age of 89, her legacy continues.  October is her birthday month and the viewing of this film is a fitting tribute to her memory.

             “Puamana” will be shown prior to the evening’s featured film, “The Scorpion King” at approximately 7 p.m.  Meleanna Aluli Meyer will introduce the film to the audience at Sunday’s event.
