"An artistic display of Hawaiian culture and storytelling."

Maui Now

World Stage
Hālau O Kekuhi

Harnessing the force of the mighty volcanoes and the serene beauty of the forests that are their neighbors, the members of this acclaimed and highly respected hula troupe sing and dance in honor of Pele, the goddess of fire and the creator of their native islands. The Hawaiian classical dance ensemble specializes in the vigorous and kinetic ‘aiha‘a style of hula and chant, handed down from woman to woman for more than eight generations of the Kanaka’ole family in Hilo, on the Big Island.
