Merrie Monarch Exhibition Night 2019

Hula Kahiko is the ancient style, usually the instruments are natural instruments and chanting. The implements can vary from ipu gourds to river rocks, to shark-skinned pahu drums. My experience is limited, but I thoroughly enjoy any chance I get for further exposure.

This year four different cultures were exhibited, ancient-style hula, Alaskan (Inuit? not totally sure) native dances, Korean ancient fan and queen's dances, along with modern pieces, and the Maori.
