Kalani's series of Hawaiian Culture Events take place every 4th Wednesday of the month.

These events feature a different Hawaiian cultural practitioner who speaks and shares ‘ike (wisdom) through talk story, hō`ike`ike (demonstration), or hana`ana (performances).

Kalani’s monthly Hawaiian Culture Events provide a unique forum where Hawai`i and its peoples can come together and share cultural knowledge, customs, and aloha to all willing to receive.

This month Kalani is honored to host this special event as part of the Puna Music Festival.

Talk Story with Leilehua Yuen & Manu Josiah: "Hawaiian Music and Instruments"

Some 20 years ago, Cultural Practitioner Leilehua Yuen coined the term, “edutainment,” for her Hawaiian cultural programs which combine traditional storytelling, chant, and hula with original music to teach, history, culture, and science of the Hawaiian islands.

Today, she and her husband, Manu Josiah, a cultural practitioner and musician with a degree in education, combine their talent and training to give people who attend their programs a memorable and inspirational journey through Hawaiian culture. From the ka`eke`eke to the steel guitar, Hawaiian music has embraced change and innovation. 

As part of the Puna Music Festival on Monday May 21 at Kalani’s EMAX, 7:30 pm, they will take participants on an exploration of Hawaiian music from its legendary beginnings, through its many changes, and even make an attempt to peer into the future. Kalani invites you to join them on their way.
