A Six-Generation Hawaiian Hula Legacy to Take Center Stage at New York City's Peter Norton Symphony Space - June 3, 2011
A story until now untold about six generations of Hawaiian women, masters of hula, who propelled preservation of Hawaiian arts into the 21st century will be shared by the Beamer-Solomon Halau O Po'ohala (hula school) from Waimea, Island of Hawaii, at New York City's Peter Norton Symphony Space on Broadway at 8 p.m., Friday, June 3, 2011.
Called "Eia Ka Hula: Behold The Hula," this performance will bring to life the Beamer-Solomon family's 150-year cultural legacy through hula, ancient chants, significant moments in Hawaiian history and family stories. The Beamer-Solomon hula drama of kahiko (ancient) and auwana (contemporary) dances will be directed by the current halau Hula Loea (dance master) with commentary by her sister, Malama Solomon, Ph.D., who serves as the halau Kakau 'Olelo (Hawaiian historian).
