Aloha, gang!

Are you going to be in the Chicago area this weekend?

I’ll be heading Chicago on Thursday to join up with Kumu Hula June Kaililani Tanoue and Hālau i Ka Pono for a weekend of Hawaiian music, hula and fun!

There will be several public events over the course of the weekend–and you are invited to attend all of ‘em!

First Up:  On Friday, July 26th, the hālau will be giving a free hula performance (with live music!) at Chicago’s legendary Millennium Park at the Family Fun Festival.  Look for us in the Family Fun tent at 1:00 PM .  (I had the chance to perform at this event last year and it was tons of fun for the whole family!)

A perfect way to spend the afternoon on Aloha Friday!

Next:  On Saturday, July 27th,  please join us for an evening of multi-cultural music and dancing, hosted by Hālau i Ka Pono.  A fundraiser to benefit Oak Park’s sole educational resource for hula instuction.

I’ll be performing with some awesomely talented folks!  Tribal dancer, Danielle Meijer will be sharing a Javanese temple dance.  Chicago mezzo, Czerina Salud, will be sharing beautiful Hawaiian songs.  And, of course, you’ll see lots of beautiful hula by Hālau i Ka Pono!  (And knowing Hawaiian events, there will be plenty of time to talk-story and have fun when the performances have ended.)

The showcase will be from 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM at the Zen Life & Meditation Center in Oak Park.  Here’s a link with all of the details: http://www.eventbrite.com/event/6912257749/es2/?rank=1

And finally:  On Sunday, July 27th, I am honored to be speaking about Hawaiian Music, Culture and Meditation at the Zen Life & Meditation Center in Oak Park.  The Sunday Morning Zen Meditation is from 9:00 AM -10:00 AM.  Here’s a link to the center’s website for details: http://www.zlmc.org/

So it’s a weekend that promises to be FULL OF ALOHA!

And we could all use some Aloha, right?

Looking forward to seeing you soon, Chicago friends and family!

Right on.
