The amazing KAWIKA KEIKIALI'IHIWAHIWA ALFICHE is the Kumu Hula (Master teacher) that will be bringing his talented troupe to the Northshore Performing Arts Center (located on the Bothell High School campus) on Saturday February 22nd at 7:30pm.

Come spend the evening watching and learning about the cultural traditions of Hawaii.

From their website:

“Our primary focus is on cultural traditions, including hula kahiko (ancient dance), hula `auana (modern dance), oli (chant), mele (traditional songs), himeni (modern songs), nā mea hula (arts, crafts, implements), lole hula (hula attire), 'ōlelo (language), and mo'olelo (stories).

The hālau has staged various hula productions that are both entertaining and educational. Kumu Kawika, along with the hālau, have opened and performed alongside well known entertainers of Hawai`i such as: The Cazimero Brothers, Cyril Pahinui, Makaha Sons, Hapa, Nathan Aweau, Herb Ohta Jr. Amy Hānaiali`i, Melveen Leed, Kainani Kahaunaele, Mailani Makainai and more.

The hālau is comprised of both men and women, young and old, ranging from 5 to 85 years of age and presents theatre productions highlighting hula in its many aspects. Following tradition, we share what we learn with different communities so that others too can benefit from a better understanding and appreciation of Hawaiian culture. It is within the stories told in the mele, and its morals and values, that people can truly be enriched in their personal lives. We hope to reach people far and wide, touching everyone who may or may not be exposed to the Hawaiian culture and share with them in this spirit.”

The Northshore Performing Arts Center is the perfect venue for this event. Located conveniently in Bothell, WA (on the Bothell High School campus), the venue features great sight lines and wonderful acoustics. There is ample free parking as well.

Tickets are moving swiftly but there are still good seats available for the performance. Purchase tickets here:  TICKETS!
