The Kumulipo is an epic Hawaiian creation chant more than 2,000 lines long – a sophisticated narrative that recounts the origin of species and dawn of humanity. Selected passages from this iconic poem have been woven into chants and dances that will premier at API Cultural Center's 13th Annual United States of Asia America Festival.

Nā Lei Hulu I Ka Wēkiu will also feature a collection of favorite pieces from its rich body of work, in honor of its 25th anniversary this year.  A reception will follow to celebrate the 25th anniversary!

 

Patrick Makuakāne (Director, Kumu Hula)

 

Opening the evening will be dancer Charya Burt and cellist Ruth Lane performing a work in progress of Caressing Nostalgia.

Caressing Nostalgia, a work-in-progress choreographed by Charya Burt, is a new Cambodian dance piece that pushes the boundaries of tradition by transforming classical gestures and movements.It depicts a sentimental yearning for a treasured past. Original music is composed by Alexis Alrich and performed by Ruth Lane.
