Festival Celebrates Hawaiian Music

Love Hawaiian music? Love hula dancing? Then head to the Big Island, where the 21st Annual Big Island Hawaiian Music Festival will be held at the Afook Chinen Civic Auditorium in Hilo from July 10-11.

This year’s event is specially dedicated to one of Hawaii’s great kumu hula (hula teacher), the late Uncle George Naope, who co-founded the prestigious Merrie Monarch Festival. The two-day affair will feature live performances from some of Hawaii’s top entertainers, hula from Hawaii’s Big Island halau (hula groups), and slack-key guitar and ukulele workshops.
