Moku O Keawe 2008 Photo Album! Hoike Night 1

Aloha Kakou!

Here's the photos from the Hoike Night!
It was truly a lovely night!
It started out with the lovely Lorna Lim, of the Lim Family singing and dancing. Her angelic voice blessed all of our souls, as Ed Yap and Wylau Rider accompanied and delivered the beautiful music.
Then, it was Halau O Kekuhi's keiki who gave an outstanding performance of their 'aiha'a dance. We got to observe first hand as how tradition is passed on...

Aloha Kakou!
Here are photos from Hoike Night Part 3!
Halau Hula Ka No'eau lead by Kumu Hula Michael Pilipang, gave a great stage performance as they showcased implements and beautiful dancing in the kahiko style.
And to round off the evening, Kuana & Kehau of Na Palapalai sweetened our ears as would a dessert, with their signature harmony.

Mahalo nui loa to ALL who were there at Moku O Keawe International Festival 2008!!!

Love & Peace,
