“There is nothing quite like the lilting flow of [Na Lei Hulu I Ka Wekiu]... not unlike the motion of the sea.” The New York Times

“[Masters of Hawaiian Music are] virtuosic keepers of a cultural flame.” The New York Times

Escape to paradise in an evening of dance and music celebrating the rich cultural traditions of Hawai'i. Under the direction of hula master Patrick Makuakane, the acclaimed company Na Lei Hulu I Ka Wekiu performs hula mua (hula that evolves), a fusion of traditional and contemporary dance. The nationally-treasured ensemble’s 24 dancers will display their distinctive style, preserving the captivating movements of their ancestors while evolving through new expression. Revered Grammy Award-winner George Kahumoku, Jr., and multi-instrumentalists Nathan Aweau and Kawika Kahiapo return as Masters of Hawaiian Music, sharing the quintessentially Hawaiian sounds of ki-ho'alu (slack key guitar).

Arrive early for a community dance class with Halau Hula O Pualanina’auali’Ioha
