Hula 2
$12.98
It became clear to me at an early age that music, particularly the voice, was something I had no choice but to develop. It was a natural path for me to take. It also became obvious that I was born to dance hula.

Hula is a huge part of who I am. I dance hula; I study hula; I teach hula. I sing so people can express the music in this important form of dance that defines my culture. Hula extends the meaning of that music, tells its story physically and through the heart of its people.

Hula and Hula 2 have been labors of love. I was and continue to be humbled by their success inside the hula and Hawaiian music community; by the visitor to these lands and to fans of Hawaiian music around the world. I take this opportunity to thank you for your support, for your appreciation of the music and the dance.
