Week 5 - Aloha ʻĀina: From Voice to Action
Aloha ʻĀina: From Voice to Action
Kū Haʻaheo e Kuʻu Hawaiʻi," the galvanizing mele aloha ʻāina of our time, has reached over one million aloha ʻāina around the world. The iconic music video, featuring some of Hawaiʻi's most celebrated artists in 2019, contributed to a larger kāhea, calling our lāhui to unify in aloha ʻāina. A year later, join us for the premiere of "Kū Haʻaheo: Pae ʻĀina Hawaiʻi", a new music video by Hawaiʻi Ponoʻī Coalition and ʻŌiwiTV, commemorating the collective response of our lāhui aloha ʻāina.
11:00am - a panel discussion on the 2019 music video and call to action: “Kū Haʻaheo e Kuʻu Hawaiʻi“, with Hinaleimoana Wong Kalu, Chad Takatsugi, Nāʻālehu Anthony, Zachary Lum, and Del Beazley

Week 4 - Mele Lāhui
Aliʻi as well as Makaʻāinana. . . . keiki through kupuna. Our lāhui has always perpetuated their own huakaʻi through mele and have embraced musical influences from abroad. We will include both sacred and secular mele as well as solo, ensemble, choral, opera and oratorio as we tell our stories. What amazing moʻolelo we have to share with you and your ʻohana from our lāhui!
