MARCH 17-21 AND MAY 26 – 30, 2017
Due to the popularity of this event we will be offering 2 ways to participate in Uke Ohana in 2017: In March the renowned recording artists Craig Chee and Sarah Maisel will join Lono, and in May, Lono will be leading us in a deep cultural and musical immersion into Old Style Hawaiian music.
COME FALL IN LOVE WITH YOUR UKULELE AS YOU IMMERSE YOURSELF IN OLD STYLE HAWAIIAN MUSIC AND ALOHA CULTURE.
Spend 5 intimate days on the Spirit Isle experiencing the roots of what has inspired generations of Hawaiians to create beautiful music… Walk the land, swim in the waters, eat traditional foods, learn the language, talk story, dance hula and most of all play LOTS of happy Ukulele music!
The Workshops will be led by Lono, one of Hawaii’s most beloved and talented folk artists. He will be joined by friends from Molokai’s vibrant community of local singers, dancers, and musicians.
A SPECIAL INVITATION
March 17-21 – Craig Chee and Sarah Maisel will join Lono and the Molokai community teaching Old Style Hawaiian Song traditions and Ukulele techniques.
Come experience Molokai, the “most Hawaiian island”. This name comes from its rich cultural heritage, that is carried on today with honor and purpose, creating a sustainable future for the island. Its population of predominately Hawaiian descent, allows you to genuinely experience the roots of Hawaiian music and lifestyle. Molokai is also known as a place of powerful prayer, it has a long history of teaching and healing, and is the sacred birthplace of hula.
The Uke Ohana workshop will be located on the lush and tropical East end of the island. There you will relax, moving at a slower pace, and learn to play & compose traditional & contemporary Hawaiian folk music of your own.
We will be staying at Pu’u O Hoku (“Hill of Stars”) a historical 14,000 acre working ranch. We will feast on traditional gourmet foods harvested by the local community and venture on foot into the nearby Halawa Valley with its ancient Taro fields, twin waterfalls and warm beaches. Arrangement can be made for you to stay at the Ranch after the workshop. Please let Melany know if you are interested in this option.
$1400 for 5 days / 4 nights. Includes all workshops, lodging and food. (Limited to 30 participants)
