Featuring Kumu Hula Paul Neves with Hālau Haʻa Kea o Kinohi
Kumu Hula Paul Neves comes from the lineage of Kumu Hula Winona Beamer. He opened Hālau Ha’a Kea o Kinohi in 2004 with schools in Hilo, San Francisco, and Kyoto, Japan. Kumu Paul is a cultural practitioner of the traditional ways of the Kanaka Maoli, who emphasizes aloha as a lifestyle, ‘ohana (family), alakaʻi (leadership/ discipline), and lokahi (unity), as the core of communal expression.
This performance is part of a year-round series sponsored by the Volcano Art Center. For the series, hula halau from across Hawai`i and beyond are invited to perform each month in a one-of-a-kind outdoor setting at the kahua hula (platform) in the Hawai`i Volcanoes National Park.
This presentation will be presented authentically in an outdoor setting, rain or shine without electronic amplification. Audience members are encouraged to bring sun/rain gear and sitting mats.
