Spend an evening with one of the Island's most important cultural treasures. Halau O Kekuhi is celebrated for its mastery of the 'aiha'a style of hula (dance) and oli (chant). The 'aiha'a is a low-postured, vigorous style of hula that springs from the eruptive volcano goddess Pele and her sister goddess, Hi'iaka, characteristic of the creative forces on the island of Hawai'i. The halau dates back to its founder Edith Kanakaole, one of the leaders of the Hawaiian cultural renaissance of the 1960's and 1970's. The halau's leadership and cultural heritage have been passed down through eight generations. Hawai'i's famous Merrie Monarch Festival takes place each year in Edith Kanakaole Stadium honoring her contributions to Hawaiian culture. The company of ten has earned national and international recognition for their art. Now see Halau O Kekuhi when they take the stage of the Irvine Barclay Theatre as part of the Barclay's Hawaiian Music Masters series.
