Album Notes

BLU-RAY version -- requires Blu-Ray player, and is best viewed on High Definition TV.

Maui kumu hula Keali`i Reichel presents KUKAHI, an unforgettable evening of traditional and contemporary song and dance featuring Halau Ke`alaokamaile. The DVD includes subtitles -- both in English and Hawaiian.

The presentation begins with an elaborate kahiko segment, celebrating Hawaii's pre-contact era with an exquisitely choreographed dance and chant sequence passed down from generations of traditional teachers. The filming segues to Kealii's contemporary songs of Hawaii's natural beauty, storied places, and love of family and friends.

You will see over two hours of live concert footage, including a segment honoring the late kumu hula, Uncle George Holokai, plus a retrospective on Kealii's career.

Special guests include Ben Vegas (reprising his song, "Pua Nani"), and kumu hula Keali`i Ceballos.

KUKAHI can be purchased in alternate formats:

Keali`i Reichel was born and raised on Maui. His passion for the language and culture of Hawai`i led him to become a founding director for Punana Leo O Maui, the Hawaiian language immersion school. In 1980, he founded his own hula school, Halau Ke`alaokamaile, wish has won numerous awards. His six albums over the past 12 years have garnered 29 Na Hoku Hanohano awards by the Hawai`i Academy for Recording Arts as well as a Grammy nomination.
