Pre-show Hula

Maui Ukulele Guild Exhibition

In 2015, Kamehameha Schools had to cancel at the last minute and thus Neal Yamamura sang with the La’au Street Band to fill in the noon time slot. When they started playing “Puamana,” I spontaneously went up to dance hula, being careful not to slip on the tile floor that was still wet from the rain. I enjoyed dancing with another hula dancer as we both did our own versions of the song.
