From Past to Present
This year's luʻau tells the story of Hawaiʻi's musical transformation
Our mele have gone through a world of change, demonstrating variety and originality in our culture. Listen and enjoy as we share with you the story of Hawaiian music, and how it evolved from the beating of the pahu drum, to Waikīkī swing, to the melodious slack key, ukulele harmonies we hear today.
