PCC luau on DVD
Visitors to the Polynesian Cultural Center can bring home the experience through a new 38-minute DVD of the center's Alii Luau.
The event, recorded inside Hale Aloha Theater, begins with a brief history of the luau and Hawaii's royalty, then traditional hula performances accompanied by the melodic tones of host Benny Kai. Viewers can learn a hula as Kai performs "Pearly Shells," and enjoy a lively medley of songs on ukulele, including a segment Kai plays with his teeth.
The DVD is $24.99, available at the PCC as well as online at www.polynesia.com.
