Join the members of Lau Hawaiian Collective on this journey through the sweet, poignant, rollicking music of the Hawaiian Islands with singing, ‘ukulele, hula ‘ili‘ili (hula with water-washed pebbles), kīkā (guitar), and kīkā kila (lap steel guitar), and stories from Hawai‘i’s past and present . Nā Mele Wai is an invitation to celebrate humanity’s shared reverence for water and to explore the place of water in today’s world.
