4th ANNUAL CHRISTMAS RECITAL

Mau Loa Ohana offers a Modern (‘auana’) take on Hula & Tahitian dance programs for children and adults. Mau Loa Ohana is dedicated to providing the ultimate island experience, enjoying the sights and sounds of genuine Polynesian entertainment.
Modern hula (Hula Auana) arose from the adaptation of traditional hula concepts of dance and chant (mele) to Western Influences. Hula ‘Auana primarily tells a story or describes a place through sinuous movements of the limbs and hips.
Hula ‘Auana, utilizes melodic harmony and utilize instruments including the ukulele, steel guitar, bass guitar, guitar, bass, piano and other modern apparati. By contrast, the old-style hula, called hula kahiko, exhibits a less elaborate musical style and is accompanied by traditional instruments such as the calabash, seed-filled gourds, split bamboo sticks, stones used as castanets, and pahu drums.
The dances also, much like the ancient Kahiko form, encompass a diverse variety of styles and moods to praise and honor the Gods, Goddesses, chiefs and places as well as songs of love for people and places of Hawaii.
