Abstract

A Sikaiana guitar song recorded in 1981-2. This was a very popular song and can be heard in the film, "Women's Celebration" and elsewhere. The song describes the sadness of lovers as they are separated when a boat leaves with one of the lovers. Travel between Sikaiana and other parts of the Solomon Islands, especially Honiara, was frequent in the 1980s.

A written version of the song and translation is attached.
