A Celebration of Kalawai‘anui
McCoy Studio Theater
Saturday, August 31, 2019 - 7:30 PM
Enjoy an evening of music, hula, and culture in celebration of the newly released album, Kalawai‘anui, released by 5-time GRAMMY Award nominee and 18-time Na Hoku Hanohano award-winner, Amy Hanaiali‘i.
Let Amy take you on an intimate look behind the rich stories and personal pasts that inspired her new album. Audience members will learn about who Kalawai‘anui is, as well as the powerful connection between her and her ancestors, and their part in putting this album together.
Joining her in this event is the world-renowned Halau Na Kipu‘upu‘u from Waimea, a traditional school of Hawaiian culture and dance. Under the direction of kumu hula Micah Kamohoaliʻi they will be presenting genealogical chants and stories from their Kalawaiʻanui Kahoaliʻi family line shared with Amy Hanaiali‘i.
It is sure to be a striking yet ritualistic presentation, calling upon the power of their ancestors and cherished homelands, taking us on an impressive journey through genealogy, history, and landscapes. This concert will be a benefit event for Mo‘okiha o Pi‘ilani - the first traditional voyaging canoe built on Maui in over 300 years!
Melt into the music, become entranced by the dancing, and divulge the sacred stories that have been passed down from generation to generation. Get your tickets now to a live concert event like no other!
