March 25: Hula, chant, and a chat with Constance Hale and Kumu Patrick Makuakāne: Book Passage, Corte Madera, 1:00 pm
After a dramatic display of dances in the courtyard, and a stirring traditional Hawaiian chant, Constance will be in conversation with Kumu Hula Patrick Makuakāne about the book. Come early and enjoy a soundtrack that veers from soft slack-key to digital drum beats. Munch on macadamia nuts, and quaff mini Mai Tais as you watch dancing that will forever change your idea of the hula. Join a discussion of Hawaiian tradition and cultural innovation. Hula skirts and aloha attire are not required, but you are welcome to get out that Hawaiian shirt, or that vintage mu’umuu‘u, and even to wear flowers in your hair.
