"`Imi Au Ia `Oe" (I Search For You) is attributed to Charles E. King and also to Queen Lili`uokalani. The song speaks of the yearning for a lost love: "I search for you, my love, in the fragrant groves of Puna."

I love slack key waltzes, the Sonny Chillingworth vocal version of this song caught my ear and inspired me to create an instrumental arrangement. You can hear Sonny's wonderful performance on the "Endlessly" CD from Dancing Cat records.

I recorded this video with a Flip Mino HD, and captured the audio with a Zoom H2 handheld recorder. I edited the audio in Adobe Audition 3, and synced the audio and video in Avidemux.
