“Dance Hula, Dance,” a fusion of ancient chant and hula with modern mele (songs) and hula, will be presented Thursday at the Kaua‘i Museum from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Members of Ka ‘Imi Na‘au‘ao O Hawai‘i Nei Educational Institute will present the program after recent travels through Tamil Nadu on a south Indian adventure.
Members from the India adventure are re-uniting for the Thursday event. Two will travel from Virginia and California; a Kaua‘i resident will return from an archaeological dig in Thailand which the group visited en route to India. One member joined the India tour from one of Ka ‘Imi Institute’s branches in Germany. Institute director Roselle Keli‘ihonipua Bailey, Kumu, will travel from Maui for a showcased guest appearance.
Following the show the public is invited to “talk story” with Ka ‘`Imi members and enjoy exhibits of their adventures via photos, mementos and found treasures.
