TEACHERS- MARCH EVENT
Old Style Hawaiian Music and Contemporary Rhythms
Lono’s teachings are in honor of those who came before us. His songs are of Molokai’s sacred sights, history, animal traditions, the winds of the different districts, it’s high chiefs, the children, the paniolo’s (cowboys) and the people of Moloka’i. “It is but a fleeting glimpse for us to see the things our ancestors had to encounter and overcome to leave us the paradise we live in today.” Lono will be teaching true Hawaiian ukulele traditions and pack the music with stories (mo’olelo) of Molokai’s past from 600 AD, to the present. Lono and his friends will also share an ancient presentation of Moloka’i hula and their stories.
