I was fortunate to be invited to attend the opening night concert for the Second Annual Moku O Keawe International Festival held at the Hilton Waikoloa Village last evening.
The headliner for the event was Keali'i Reichel. You'll see him later in this stream.
For me, the highlight of the evening was watching this beautiful lady, Nalani Kanaka`ole perform hula to one song performed by another member of her talented and gifted family, Kaumakaiwa Kanaka`ole, who you will also see later in this photostream.
Nalani, is co-Kumu Hula (Hula Master) of the Halau O Kekuhi. She is the daughter of the late Edith Ke-Kuhi-Kuhi-I-Pu-u-One`o- Na-Ali`i-o-Kohala Kenoa Kanaka`ole (1913-1979).
Some of you might recall seeing Nalani in a photo I posted back in September of this year.
The Moku O Keawe Foundation is a private, non-profit organization with the charter of enriching the practice and development of Hula and associated arts.
