Fall in love….with your ukulele…and Molokai!
Your mornings will be spent playing Old Style Hawaiian ukulele music and learning music theory. Your afternoons will be filled with playing songs at the locations they were written about, as well as learning the music and dance of hula, while experiencing Aloha culture with members of the Molokai community. Finally, your evenings will be filled with music shared under the stars with the legends of Molokai.
Throughout our time together at Pu’ u O Hoku Ranch we will learn chords, strums, scales, slides and perform them… You will write your own songs, really “hear” your ukulele & feel the spirit of “Ohana”.
Its all about you falling in love with your Ukulele and the music you make together!
Mo’olelo-Storytelling and Ukulele. You will hear Lono teaching true Hawaiian ukulele traditions and music with stories of Molokai’s past from 600 AD, to the present. You will be embraced by the vibrant community of Molokai; from Aloha Fridays, to the beautiful ancient valley of Halawa with its taro fields and flowers, and the old style Hawaiian hospitality, biodynamic cuisine and aesthetic of Pu’u O Hoku Ranch.
“Hui O Mele Nei” Lono and his friends will give an ancient presentation of traditional Molokai hula that is made up of 3 dances and the stories behind them.
They will enhance our experience of Hawaiian history, language, culture and hula while we learn the songs of Molokai on our Ukuleles.
A word from Lono: “Your Ukulele embrace will teach you Old Style Hawaiian music and lifestyle. The people and culture of Molokai will empower you to become personally involved with your own Ukulele music. The music and landscape will inspire you to create your own Old Style songs.”
NOTE: After registration an information packet will be sent to you. It will include a booklet of traditional Molokai songs, with chords, from the Aloha Friday night songbook, to the contemporary songs written by Lono.
