Kumu Hula Māpuana de Silva and Hālau Mōhala ʻIlima present the 38th annual Holomua Ka Noʻeau concert of traditional hula, oli, and Hawaiian music. The theme, “Kapu Nā Mauna,” will celebrate some of our most sacred and well known mountains, including: Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa, Kaʻuiki, Haleakalā, Laeʻahi, Kaʻala, Waiʻaleʻale, and Makana.
Robert Uluwehi Cazimero, the gentlemen of Hālau Nā Kamalei o Līlīlehua, Kealiʻi Reichel, his hui hoʻokani, and some of the ladies from Hālau Keʻalaokamaile will be featured throughout the concert. Uluwehi and Kealiʻi will also join with the Lei ʻĀpiki of HMI to create some magical moments and collaborate on a few hula.
Profits from the concert will help fund hālau activites and HMI’s 40th appearance at the Merrie Monarch Hula Festival in April of 2018.
