Sitting on a beach chair or your beach blanket under the stars at the Mauna Lani Bay Resort’s “Twilight at Kalahuipua’a” is an event everyone should experience at least once.
At each monthly full moon “talk story,” the resort’s cultural historian, Danny Kaniela Akaka, manages to bring together a wonderful group of singers, dancers and musicians. These musical evenings with hula and stories of Hawaii are casual, relaxed and a treat for kama’aina and malahini (newcomers) alike.
Twilight at Kalahuipua’a was designed to perpetuate the traditional folk art of storytelling and Hawaiian culture through sharing stories, songs and dance.
This past weekend we had the pleasure of listening to Brother Nolan and Tony Conjugacion, both award-winning musicians in their own right. Together they were a delight to listen to and their friendly banter brought on plenty of laughter and fun.
An evening like this on the Kohala Coast is priceless and one of the reasons many people choose to call the Big Island home. If you are in the market for a villa, town-home or condo within walking distance to the restored Eva Parker Woods Cottage where this monthly Twilight event takes place, please contact me–let’s “Talk Story” about Kohala Coast real estate.
