Robert Cazimero & Halau Na Kamalei - 7.5"x 10.5" - 124 pages - Black, White & Color Photographs - Hardcover
one man brought about a permanent change in the practice of hula. His
name is Robert Cazimero and his vision was Halau Na Kamalei, the only
male halau hula in the Hawaiian Islands. Today, Robert Cazimero is
considered to be one of the most respected kumu hula of Hawaiian dance.
The men of Na Kamalei perform around the world, and for 35 years, they
have carried on the tradition of male hula. Through the years, Robert
Cazimero and Halau Na Kamalei have blazed their journey with Hawaiian
pride, dispelling deep-rooted stereotypes of grass skirt girls and
coconut bras. The men of hula have swayed the heart of hula by
reclaiming the masculine side of the ancient dance. Many excellent photographs!
