SIVA MASINA 02:32
Siva Masina (Moon Dance) Upu Faasamoa: Pe se la nei luga o le sami Le lalolagi vaivai Puupuu tatou taimi e feloai Te fa’anoanoa pea Siva masina O fono ai le igoa maliu Vaitafe o le niu Malu a’e le la Te ataata lea, ou te ataata pea Ata pea loimata ua mou atu Tu’u Mai Lou lima ta te eva I le po Taitai ou vae ma sisiva lo’u uo Fiafiaga i lalo le la o le po Ae maigi le tiga la’e toetiti e ta’ o All the times I’ve fooled the light Dancing in it’s delirious nights Haunted by this son’s moonlight Waiting for the moon to rise Upu Igilisi: Here like a sun on the sea The weary earth Our time of meeting is short and my sadness lingers The moon dance calls the dead names Rivers of coconut The sun has gone to rest Here smiling and forever smiling Smiling whilst my tears fadeaway Lend me your hand, we shall spend the night Guide our feet and dance, my friend Joyous under the sun of the night but it hurts so much that we have to go soon All the times I’ve fooled the light Dancing in it’s delirious nights Haunted by this son’s moonlight Waiting for the moon to rise

AFIAFI 01:24
Afiafi (Evening) Upu Faasamoa: Leai se mea E leai se mea Tuu pea ma faasao lou mata E tele taimi o te fia sui le faiga Ae lalo o le sami e fanau le lagi Faalogota under the stars Maybe i can take you there or someday you’ll be there Tamaiti o tamaiti Aua le tagi pe ae taaalo i le afi i le afiafi High on seas and season highs Ain’t surprised with the only angel hell’s kept inside Faalogota under the stars Maybe i can take you there or someday you’ll be here Upu Igilisi: Nothing there There is nothing there Let it be and straighten your eyes. There's many times you've wanted to change the form But under the sea the sky is born. Lazing under the stars Maybe I can take you there or someday you'll be there Children of children Don't cry when you play with the fire of the night High on seas and season highs Ain't surprised with the only angel hell's kept inside Lazing under the stars Maybe I can take you there or someday you'll be here

1000 FANTOMS 03:04
1000 Fantoms Upu Faasamoa: Tausi le po Sau vaai ma ai Sau faalogo mai i le pese tuai E le se teine sa, oi tatou le la Tuu lo’u loto lalo le vae masina A thousand phantoms on the wall and they all had a heart of gold Tell me your secrets that you hold Please let me know I’m not alone Sau talanoa i luga o nei auala Moe manatunatu ma le agaga selau Tofa saili o faigata Siva lelei, aua tautalatala Teu le vā ma le pogisa Lalolagi ma le lagi na tagi mai le tala Le aitu selau, le aitu selau Ua pepese ma minoi ma le aitu selau A thousand phantoms on the wall and they all had a heart of gold Tell me your secrets that you hold Please let me know I’m not alone Upu Igilisi: Take care of the night Come look and eat Come listen to the songs of late The twelve sisters are not here, we are the sun I put my heart at the feet of the moon A thousand phantoms on the wall and they all had a heart of gold Tell me your secrets that you hold Please let me know I’m not alone Come converse on this road Ancestral dreams with the hundred souls The journey of wisdom is difficult Dance well, don't talk too much Nurture the space with the darkness Earth and heaven cry out the story The hundred ghosts, the hundred ghosts I sing and move with the hundred ghosts A thousand phantoms on the wall and they all had a heart of gold Tell me your secrets that you hold Please let me know I’m not alone

VALE PAIA 01:24
Vale Paia (Sacred Fool) Upu Faasamoa: Ae paie E le maua se mea Su’esu’e le malaga, ae i fea? Paia luga, paia lalo Na aoao le gagana o le fou Nei taimi. O nalo ma le sami Selau afe aitu na sau gaoi le tali Vale paia, paia fou Vave le taumumusu, faamanaia fool Upu Igilisi: But lazy Haven't found anything In search for the journey, but where? High above, down below Learning the language of the new. These times are lost with the sea A hundred thousand ghosts have come to steal the truth Sacred fool, new sacredness Quick whispers, beautiful fool.

about

NOA004:

‘E lele le toloa, ae ma’au i le vai’ - the duck may fly but it will always return to the water.

Noa Records presents, the debut offering formed from the ancestral mind of LEAO titled 'GHOST ROADS'.

This project sees Tāmaki-based David Feauai-Afaese (AKA Dave Urso) deliver their first ever body of musical-work written from a fa'asamoa core, providing feelings and messages embodied both in language and spirit. We invite you to wade through these sonic-waters, filled in to this vessel carved out by the creative entity that is LEAO.

Special thanks to Faauli Feauai-Okazaki for her continuous alofa and support throughout this tofa saili. Alofa tele ia te oe, tuafafene.
