This rare collection of more than a hundred songs from the end of the nineteenth-century contains the largest number of Hawalian political and patriotic songs ever printed in one place. Also included in the collection are nonpolitical songs that reflect other personal and political aspects of Hawalian life of that period in 1895. Francisco Jose Testa, editor of "Ka Makaainana," collected these mele together in one volume to be published as "Buke Mele Lanul." Testa refers to these compositions as "mele aloha-alna;" patriotic songs or songs of loyalty.
