After a two-year break, the highly anticipated Kāmau Pono concert returns for “Iwakālua”: an evening celebrating 20 years of hula, family, and tradition.
Hawaii actor, composer, and recording artist Kumu Hula Tony Conjugacion has performed all over the world. Now, he is bringing an incredible range of talents to the stage with a special lineup of ancient and rare styles of hula.
The evening’s special guest, Kumu Auli’i, will debut two three-foot tall handmade marionettes. His Hālau o Moana Nui A Kiwa, from Aotearoa, New Zealand, will perform the Hula Ki’i (puppetry) along with other styles.
Also performing: Kumu Tony’s Hālau Nā Wainohia, celebrating its 20th anniversary, and special guest Kumu Minerva Pang and the Minerva Pang Hula Studio.
At the young age of 90, Kūpuna Minerva will celebrate 60 years of Hula and 31 years at the Hawai’i Department of Education’s Kūpuna Program.
