Keiki Hula International Exchange Program Brings Hawaiian and Japanese Keiki Together – Honolulu, Hawaii

Honolulu, Hawaii 2021-07-20 03:46:33 –

The Keiki Hula International Exchange Program connected the United States and Japan and gave Keiki a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

The Kalihi-Palama Cultural Arts Association and its Japanese Keiki Hula Partner have been involved in an international hula exchange program for 15 years. The winning dancers from Japan and Hawaii can dance in each other’s contests. Last year’s pandemic not only closed countless Hawaiian cultural events, but for the first time since World War II, the border between Hawaii and Japan was nearly closed.

When Yasuda International announced in February this year that it would host the Japan Keiki Hula Competition in Kamakura, Kalihi-Palama will use its 21st technology to transport three Kumu Hula on Oahu, more than 4,000 miles away. We reviewed the competition. Honshu island. If the feat of this technique applied to ancient art forms proves, Hawaiian culture and those responsible for perpetuating it are far more elastic than anyone could have imagined. There may be.

Be sure to check out the Queen of Lili’uokalani Keiki Hula Celebration on Monday Thursday at K5.
