Na Moku Eha: Mele o O‘ahu

Description

NA MOKU ‘EHA  MUSIC SERIES 

Mele o O‘ahu 
May 19, 2018 

Oahu small

A concert laden with stories and lore, songs, hula, and chant,  from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., 
$30 each in advance, or $35 at door. 

“Songs of O‘ahu,” presents the music and hula of the most populous of the islands, that includes Honolulu and Waikiki. 

For the second performance of the season on May 19, Mele o O‘ahu, we’ll be doing a ka‘apuni around the island starting on the North Shore at Ka‘ena and ending on the West Side in Wai‘anae. Each moku, or district, will be represented by song. Such as “Kalena Kai” from Waialua, “Nani Ka‘ala” of Ko‘olau Poko, “Waiki ki ” from Kona, and “Pa ‘au‘au Waltz” of the Ewa plain. We are blessed to have Aunty Marlene Sai and Ocean Kaowili as our guest artists. Both have made names for themselves as brilliant Hawaiian musicians and are often found serenading kama‘a ina and malihini alike 

in Waikiki . 

Please check in at the reservations desk when you arrive. Doors open at 5:00 p.m. 

Please note: Senator Akaka's service and visitation will take place during the day across the street at Kawaiaha'o Church until 5:00 p.m. This may cause limited on-the-street parking availability. Also, we do not have parking available at Kawaiaha'o Plaza due to ongoing renovations there. So, we recommend all to kindly park at the Fasi Municipal lot located on 650 S. King Street between S. King and S. Beretania Streets. Apologies for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding!

If you brought a picnic, we ask that you stow your coolers before the performance—they are not allowed in the seating area for everyone’s safety and comfort.

Seating for the performance is provided. Unfortunately we have not been able to reserve parkin—so only street parking and the underground parking of the Frank F. Fasi Municipal Building, 1100 Alapai Street, Honolulu, HI 96813 which is free on weekends. Caution: do not park in reserved stalls.

Kindly be considerate of your fellow audience members—you are welcome to take pictures or record, but please do so from the sides of the seating area.
