Hālau o Kekuhi is the hālau hula (classical dance company) and the center of cultural knowledge for Edith Kanaka‘ole Foundation. The cultural beliefs and practices in which EKF is anchored radiates from the traditional practices of the hālau hula that can account for eight generations of kumu hula (hula masters).
“Hula is a reflection of life. Hula is a way of telling history.” – Pua Kanaka‘ole
Hālau o Kekuhi is celebrated for its mastery of the ‘aiha‘a style of hula (dance) and oli (chant). The ‘aiha‘a is a low-postured, vigorous, bombastic style of hula that springs from the eruptive volcano persona Pele and Hi‘iaka, characteristic of Hawai‘i Island’s creative forces. Hālau o Kekuhi has earned local, state, national, and international recognition for their art.
