Concert featuring a variety of performers of both modern and traditional Hawaiian music and dance (including hula) from the Hawaii Theatre in Honolulu. To ancient Hawaiians, music, chant and dance were of great cultural importance. Without a written language, these arts were used as a means of recording history, from the Hawaiian beliefs about their gods and goddesses, to the essential sciences of medicine, agriculture and fishing, to critical navigation information needed to undertake sea voyages in double-hulled canoes across thousands of miles of open ocean.
