Album Notes

Suggested retail price $29.99

Kanoe Miller, a former Miss Hawai`i, captures the magic that happens when you combine the romance of the hula with the charm of the old hapa-haole melodies. Kanoe dances ten of her favorite hulas, each filmed in a different island location and accompanied by an enchanting narration. Along the way, she shares some of the simple pleasures in her day-to-day life: walking her dogs, smelling the flowers, making a ti leaf skirt in her backyard.

Music is provided by the Hiram Olsen Trio (Hiram "Jiggs" Olsen on guitar, Dennis "Bla" Keohokalole on bass, and Casey Olsen on steel guitar), with Gary Aiko performing a guest vocal on "Sweet Leilani."

ROMANTIC WAIKIKI HULA immerses you in the essence of Hawai`i and gives you a greater appreciation for the beauty that surrounds the islands. If you live in Hawai`i, this DVD will make you swell with pride; if you don't, it will make you wish you were here!

SPECIAL FEATURES: There is a second audio track that allows you to listen to a commentary by Kanoe during each dance: about the costume, the lei, the location, and the feeling of the song.

The DVD menu provides a selection for "Dances Only" which will allow you to play the DVD as continuous entertainment for a party. The DVD menu provides a selection for playing any single dance over and over for those who would like to follow along and learn.
