Hālau Hula O Na Mele 'Aina O Hawai'i

Sunday, May 1911:00 AM—12:00 PMThe Barrymore Film Center153 Main St, Fort Lee, NJ, 07024

Celebrate AAPI Heritage Month with an amazing Hula demonstration! The dancers of Hālau Hula O Na Mele ‘Aina O Hawai’i will perform both ancient style hula dance (hula kahiko) and modern style (hula ‘auana)

The kahiko performance (ancient hula) goes back in time with chants from ancient Hawaiʻi as we honor the goddess Pele, and move forward to the monarchy period and into more contemporary chants honoring Hawaiʻi’s birds, flowers, people, and the land.

The ʻauana performance (modern hula) still tells the stories of land, sea, animals, and people, as well as emotions, often using ancient musical instruments which blend the ancient and modern.
