“…the dancers give us a sense of journeying, of different ladscapes and change of mood…the women get juicier as they move…suddenly singing on a melting harmony…” (Deborah Jowitt, Village Voice)
“Dance of deceptive simplicity and song and drumming of formidable complexity…a flow of increasing rhythmic detail and staccato push.” (Jennifer Dunning, The New York Times)
It has been said that "True hula is the quintessential expression of Hawaiian cultural values," deeply rooted in tradition and legend. Halau Hula Ka No‘eau is dedicated to preserving and performing traditional hula, and a dance style called hula ku‘i passed down from the late hula master Maiki Aiu Lake. The show draws the audience in from the first opening chants that evoke the long history of Hawaiian oral tradition, and, through the rhythms and nuances of dance and the melodies of aloha, takes them on a moving and inspiring journey. The company has won top honors at hula and chant competitions throughout Hawaii and has performed in New York and across the United States.
