THE HULA - THE REVISED EDITION THE HULA - THE REVISED EDITION BOOK

#B454
 Author Jerry Hopkins - 181 pages - Black-White & Color Photos - Hardcover.
     Hawai'i in the 1970s was a vibrant time; a Hawaiian Renaissance was being led, in part, by the renewed popularity of and interest in hula as an integral part of Hawaiian culture. The Hula was originally written by Jerry Hopkins in 1978, with assistance from Rebecca Kamili'ia Erikson, and it has been a significant narrative on the dance form ever since. Hopkins's book was the first to offer readers a comprehensive history of hula aimed at a general audience.
     Three decades later, The Hula has not been superseded. This reissue of The Hula has been updated and edited by Hawaiian music and hula expert Amy Ku'uleialoha Stillman and enhanced by poignant photographs and graphics, makes an overview of hula once again available to new generations of hula dancers, cultural enthusiasts and fans alike.
     This revised edition incorporates the same graphics as the original, but has been completely redesigned.

Robert Cazimero & Halau Na Kamalei - 7.5"x 10.5" - 124 pages - Black, White & Color Photographs - Hardcover

In 1975, 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!

HAWAIIAN MUSIC & MUSICIANS - AN ENCYCLOPEDIC HISTORY BOOK HAWAIIAN MUSIC & MUSICIANS - AN ENCYCLOPEDIC HISTORY BOOK

# B461
Dr. George S Kanahele & John Berger - 6" X 9" - 926 pages -Black & White Photographs & Illustrations -  Softcover

     When George S. Kanahele founded the Hawaiian Music Foundation in 1971 he immediately saw the need for a systematic presentation of the whole tradition of Hawaiian music, from its origins in pre-contact chant and hula, to the adaptation of other musical traditions and instruments, to the extraordinary spread of Hawaiian music as “world music,” and finally to the Hawaiian Renaissance that saved the tradition from near-extinction.
     Compiled with the assistance of a hundred contributors and the research of many more, it was immediately recognized as the most ambitious book ever written about Hawaiian music.
Organized like an encyclopedia, with entries in alphabetical order, the book presents the roots of Hawaiian music, from ancient chants to the flowering of the musical renaissance. There are biographies of musicians from every period of Hawaiian musical history—from Henry Berger, David Kālakaua, Queen Lili‘uokalani, and others of their time, to the great names of the 20th century. A special section presents many rare photographs of historical interest, featuring singers, chanters, dancers, and instrumentalists. Melody lines, chants, and rhythm patterns are illustrated by music notation. This revised and updated edition is the indispensable go-to guide to the galaxy of Hawaiian music.

HOW SIX LITTLE IPU GOT THEIR NAMES BOOK HOW SIX LITTLE IPU GOT THEIR NAMES BOOK - SALE

#B391

D. Brimmer, J. Coleson - 8-1/2" x 11"- color illustrations - 32 pages - Hardcover - Audio CD
This book is an imaginative look into the life story of a hula implement. Separated from their vines at a tender age, the little gourds are taken to the home of a local implement maker. There they meet Uncle Ka Leo, a grand and grumpy ipu heke, who gives them tantalizing glimpses of what they someday may become. Even though the little gourds are frightened and insecure, sticking together gives them the courage that carries them safely through their many adventures. While one of the little gourds is constantly worried that his imperfection will be his downfall, it turns out in the end (as it does for many of us) that his imperfection is what makes him special and unique. As the hula students learn about their new implements, the little gourds learn about themselves as well. Once each girl finds the ipu hula they feel is really, really theirs, the little gourds find that they too have re-captured their long-lost feelings of "being connected." In spite of life's uncertainties and insecurities, this story reminds us all that happy endings are possible, even in the most unexpected of places.
