Hālau o Kekuhi

Hālau o Kekuhi

Presented by Harris Center for the Arts at Harris Center for the Arts

Hālau o Kekuhi is celebrated for its mastery of the ‘aih’a style of hula (dance) and oli (chant). The ‘aih’a is a low-postured, vigorous, bombastic style of hula that springs from the eruptive volcano persona Pele and Hi‘iaka, characteristic of Hawai‘i Island’s creative forces. The leadership of the company is transmitted through matrilineal succession; Kaumakaiwa Kanaka’ole inherited the role of kumu hula (hula master) alongside her great-aunt and aunt and was awarded a highly-regarded 2015 Native Hawaiian Artist Fellowship. The company of 10 has earned national and international recognition for their art.
