Hawaiian slack key musician Aja Gample's rendition of  "Tewe Tewe."  This song tells the story the ʻoʻopu nui (large native freshwater goby) and the way it writhes back and forth, in and out, as it is captured and embraced in the net.  As with most mele Hawaiʻi (Hawaiian songs) the story we hear is just the surface level.  The motions of the hula clue us in, and the deeper meaning and innuendo lives in the metaphorical layers just beneath.
