John Keola Lake and his hula halau will
present music and dance that honor Waikiki.
The journey into the past will begin with chants and dances that honor ancient Waikiki, which changes from a gathering place of chiefs to the gathering place of visitors, from pa'u to cellophane skirts, from pahu to big band sounds, from quiet to nightclubs.
Lake's guests for the evening include Na Hoku Hanohano Promising Male Vocalist of the Year Weldon Kekauoha, along with Oana Salazar, Jeff Apaka, Momi Kepelino Aarona, Doug Tolentino and several halau.
A traditional group from Rapa Nui also will perform. Lake met the group when his halau traveled to Rapa Nui last year in conjunction with the landing of the voyaging canoe Hokule'a.
Tickets are the event are $15, available at the door. Hawaiian foods, crafts and plants will also be available for sale.
