42nd Annual Prince Lot Hula Festival at 'Iolani Palace

42nd annual Prince Lot Hula Festival at Iolani Palace features special performances
by hālau hula of Nā Kumu Hula Robert Uluwehi Cazimero, Karl Veto Baker and Michael Lanakila Casupang

I Mua E Nā Pōkiʻi, Move Forward, O Youth. The 42nd annual Prince Lot Hula Festival takes place at the historic Iolani Palace on Saturday, July 20, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and on Sunday, July 21 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The Prince Lot Hula Festival is the largest non-competitive hula celebration in Hawai‘i. It honors Prince Lot Kapuāiwa, who helped reprise hula in the 1850s and reigned as Kamehameha V from 1863 to 1872.

The festival is free to attend thanks in large part to Hawai‘i’s visitors and tourism dollars. Hawai‘i Tourism is the presenting sponsor of the Prince Lot Hula Festival.

There will be special performances by award winning hālau hula. On Saturday at 10:05 a.m., Kumu Hula Robert Cazimero and Hālau Nā Kamalei O Lililehua will perform. They return to the festival after a four-year absence.

On Sunday at 11 a.m., Hālau I Ka Wekiu, led by Nā Kumu Hula Karl Veto Baker and Michael Lanakila Casupang, will perform a special tribute to fire goddess Pele featuring 90 dancers.

“Hawaii Tourism is proud to support the kumu hula and ‘ōlapa who carry the kuleana of hula and the Moanalua Gardens Foundation for providing an opportunity for them to share that hula,” HTA president and CEO Chris Tatum said.

Moanalua Gardens Foundation (MGF) is the festival’s producer.

“We are honored to have two of Hawai‘i’s finest hālau hula participate this year and are looking
forward to their stunning performances,” MGF executive director and president Alika Jamile said.

“We encourage the entire community to join us for the 42nd annual Prince Lot Hula Festival at Iolani Palace to celebrate two days of hula on these sacred grounds, where our aliʻi, including Prince Lot, lived and ruled.”

The Prince Lot Hula Festival was founded in 1978 by MGF as a gift to the community. It now attracts thousands of residents and visitors every year.

The opening ceremony on Saturday will include the Royal Order of Kamehameha, and presentation of MGF’s Namakahelu Oli Award to Master Chanter Kamuela Chun of Hilo.

Twenty-one hālau hula will perform both kāhiko (ancient) and ‘auana (contemporary) hula over the festival weekend. Hālau from every major Hawaiian island have been invited and their kumu have been encouraged to include dancers from their out-of-state branches.

On Sunday, as part of the opening program, MGF will honor the late Kumu Hula Hokulani De Rego, who came from the hula line of Lokalia Montgomery, with its Sixth Annual Malia Kau award. The award will be accepted by her three daughters who are continuing their mother’s hula legacy through Halau Hula ‘O Hokulani.

The festival will also feature a Hawaiian themed craft fair, and cultural demonstrations.

Food and refreshments will be available for purchase throughout the day, along with limited edition t-shirts and souvenir kōkua buttons. Proceeds from the merchandise sales will help cover some of the costs of the festival.

The event is open to the public. People are encouraged to bring their beach chairs and mats. No commercial photography is allowed.

Major sponsors and supporters include: Hawai‘i Tourism, the National Endowment for the Arts, State Foundation on Culture and the Arts, Office of Hawaiian Affairs, Iolani Palace, Hawaiian Airlines, Matson Navigation, The Queen’s Medical Center, Royal Hawaiian Center, Koga Engineering, Pasha Hawaii, Hawai‘i Visitors and Convention Bureau, O‘ahu Visitors Bureau, the Honolulu Star Advertiser, MidWeek, ‘Ōlelo Community Media, and Urgent Care Hawaii.

Participating hālau and a festival performance schedule will be announced at a later date. For more information, please call 808.839.5334.

A non-profit organization founded in 1970, Moanalua Gardens Foundation (MGF) is committed to preserving and perpetuating the native culture and environment of Hawai’i through education and stewardship of Kamananui (Moanalua) Valley and celebration of the Prince Lot Hula Festival at Iolani Palace.

2 sets: 6:30PM (Doors 5:00PM) & 9:00PM (Doors 8:30PM)

The group's self-titled album, released in 1993, remains the number one selling recording by a group or duo in the history of recorded Hawaiian music. It would go on to sweep all six categories it was nominated for at the 1994 Hawaii Music Awards. In 2007, the album was acknowledged by Honolulu Magazine as #31 of the “50 All-Time Greatest Hawaiian Recordings Of All Time” with the original song “Lei Pikake” acknowledged as #32 in the follow-up “50 All-Time Greatest Songs” issue.

The group's groundbreaking music has established them as the most recognized name in Hawaiian Music since their debut release. Due to popular demand, the original members will reunite once again on the Blue Note Hawaii stage.

Queen Lili'uokalani Keiki Hula 44th Annual Competition - Miss & Master Keiki Hula

ABOUT KEIKI HULA

A festival to honor Hawai’i’s last reigning monarch, Queen Lili'uokalani



On September 11, 1976, the Kalihi-Palama Culture & Arts Society, Inc. organized a festival to honor Hawai’i’s last reigning monarch, Queen Lili’uokalani. The day-long event was held at A’ala Park and featured multi-ethnic dance performances, Hawaiian crafts demonstrations, a pageant of Hawai’i’s mo’i wahine, and the first keiki hula competition.

KPC&A’s program coordinator Wendell Silva, along with committee chairman George Naope, envisioned a competition where children could share their achievements in hula while learning about Queen Lili’uokalani, her ‘ohana and Hawai’i’s historical past. The competition was created for youngsters 6 to 12 years of age in “hula ‘auana” only. On the 11th day in September 1976, six groups entered the first Queen Lili’uokalani Keiki Hula Competition.

After two years, the competition moved indoors to the Farrington High School auditorium to provide the dancers with a better venue to showcase their talents. Over the next few years, the competition added the soloists and hula kahiko categories, a separate division for the keiki kane, and the Hawaiian language critique.

The Queen Lili’uokalani Keiki Hula Competition is held annually at the Neal S. Blaisdell Center Arena in July.

Ledward Kaapana Live at McCabe's Guitar Shop - Santa Monica, CA

Ledward Kaapana Live at McCabe's Guitar Shop - Santa Monica, CA

Led Kaapana’s mastery of stringed instruments, particularly slack key guitar, and his extraordinary baritone and leo ki`eki`e (falsetto) voices, have made him a musical legend. He has been thrilling audiences for more than 40 years. With easy-going style and kolohe (rascal) charm, he has built a loyal corps of Led Heads from Brussels to his birthplace on the Big Island of Hawaii. Recognition by his peers earned Led 4 Grammy nominations in his own right and 2 wins on slack key compilations.

As teenagers, Led and his twin brother Ned and cousin Dennis Pavao formed the Hui Ohana, one of the hottest groups of the 70s and 80s and now legendary among Hawaiian musicians. The 70s saw the blossoming of the Hawaiian Renaissance, and Hui Ohana was a key part of that return to traditional Hawaiian culture and music. Young Hawaii Plays Old Hawaii, the title of their first recording, was also their statement of purpose.

The group produced 14 best-selling albums and made countless hundreds of live appearances, proudly sharing Kalapana’s musical traditions.

Led later formed another trio, Ikona, releasing 6 albums with that group, including Na Hoku Hanohano Award winner, Jus’ Press. He has also released a number of solo albums, including two Na Hoku Hanohano Instrumental Album of the Year winners, Lima Wela and Black Sand. Ki Ho`alu, Hawaiian Slack Key, Grandmaster Slack Key and Force of Nature (with Mike Kaawa) received Grammy nominations.

While recording for Dancing Cat Records, Led produced a number of solo projects, duets, and a project with Allison Krauss, Jerry Douglas, and other bluegrass legends called Waltz of the Wind. He has worked with Dolly Parton, Chet Atkins, and many other Nashville notables. Back at home, he has shared his talents on recordings with most of Hawaii’s top talents, including Aunty Genoa Keawe, Barney Isaacs, The Ho`opi`i Brothers, Melveen Leed, the Pahinui Brothers, Amy Hanaiali`i, and countless others. In 2008, Led formed his own recording company, Jus’ Press Productions, and released his Force of Nature CD, with 12-string virtuoso Mike Kaawa. The album earned a Grammy nomination in 2009 and won Led and Mike the Favorite Entertainer Award at the 2009 Na Hoku Hanohano Awards. That was followed up with Jus’ Cruzin’, an all autoharp CD, in 2014, Jus’ Press Vol. 2, which took the 2016 ‘Ukulele Album of the Year Hoku, and, most recently, Jus’ Bes’, released in late 2017, a remastered retrospective of some of Led’s all time greatest hits.

Reuniting after 17 years, the original duo of Barry Flanagan and Keli'i Kaneali'i bring back the groundbreaking sound that established the name HAPA as one of the most recognized names in Hawaiian music since their debut album hit the airwaves.

Meaning 'half' in Hawaiian, the name HAPA is inspired by the band’s two members - Keli'i Kaneali’i of South Pacific ancestry, and Barry Flanagan from New Jersey.

The group's self-titled album, released in 1993, remains the #1 selling recording by a group or duo in the history of recorded Hawaiian music. The recording swept all six categories it was nominated for at the 1994 Hawai’i Music Awards. In 2007, the album was acknowledged by Honolulu Magazine as #31 of the 50 All-Time Greatest Hawaiian Recordings, with the original song Lei Pikake acknowledged as #32 in the follow-up 50 All-Time Greatest Songs issue.

Blue Note Hawaii Presents Wille K

2 sets: 6:30PM (Doors 5:00PM) & 9:00PM (Doors 8:30PM)

When the Honolulu Pulse said, “Willie K can play or sing almost anything an American audience might ask for,” that wasn’t hype, it was the literal truth. The Hawaiian phenomenon Willie K is undoubtedly the only artist in the world who can go into an Irish pub in the middle of Maui and play anything from indigenous acoustic Hawaiian music to jazz, reggae, rock, country and even opera—and not only get away with it but leave everyone within earshot slack-jawed in astonishment. No less than Prince is a huge fan, calling Willie K a “funky mother#%@&er,” while another avowed fan is a fellow Hawaiian who goes by the name Barack Obama.

Ke Kani O Ke Kai 2019 Summer Concert Series featuring Kawaikapuokalani Hewett, Jerry Santos and Kamuela Kimokeo & Streetlight Cadence

Ke Kani O Ke Kai

Ke Kani O Ke Kai 2019 – The Waikīkī Aquarium’s popular annual summer concert series offers visitors and residents an evening of live entertainment and food under the stars. The five-concert series was held on alternating Thursday evenings from mid-June through early August featuring some of Hawai‘i’s top entertainers. Concert guests were encouraged to explore the Aquarium galleries that remain open throughout the evening and bring blankets/chairs to sit on the beach-front lawn – making this major fundraiser one of the best, and unique, ways to experience the Aquarium and Waikīkī.

Seating will be tiered, so those sitting on mats on the grass lawn will be seated closest to the stage, those with low chairs in the next section back, and those with full size lawn chairs seated furthest-most from the state. No outside food or beverages will be permitted in the venue area. Limited parking may be available, so guests are encouraged to utilize public transportation to and from the event.
Children of all ages are permitted.
