Well-respected Hawai'i Author Allan Seiden expertly chronicles the history, traditions and beauty of the ancient art of hula. Rare historical images and vibrant full-color photography accompany the informative text.
The hula has survived, ultimately flourishing, not as a cultural relic, but as a catalyst in the revival of Hawaiian culture that continues to this day, when the hula halau, or troupes, number in the hundreds and include devotees not only in Hawai'i, but in places around the world. Their efforts have given new life to hula, assuring it a role in a cultural renaissance that honors the past yet looks toward the future.
