On View - Aug 28, 2014 - Aug 28, 2014

Traditionally known as a Portuguese instrument that has been made popular by the 50th state, the friendly 4-stringed ukulele has found a niche in Hawaiian, jazz, folk, contemporary, and world music. Its distinctive sound brings an instant island tone to any piece of music and is easily recognizable when used to help tell stories in television and film. Please join us as we celebrate, for the third time in The Clive Davis Theater, this magical instrument with KoAloha Ukulele. After an opening performance featuring S. California-based Hula Halau, Kumu Hula Puanani Jung and Halau Hula Lani Ola, we’ll screen the award-winning independent film, The Haumana. After the film, Vice President of KoAloha Ukulele, Paul Okami, film composer, Gibi del Barrio, and writer/director, Keo Woolford, of The Haumana, and Kumu Hula Puanani Jung, will participate in a Q&A panel discussion of mele (music) in film.
