I hope you’ll enjoy this hula and Hawaiian chant video. I love that this hula was performed on a beach on the south shore of Kauai. What a gorgeous setting!
The name of the chant is “Aloha Waimea I Ka Wai Kea” which means “beloved is Waimea in the white water.” Here’s the video description:
Rough footage of Kumu hula (hula teacher) Kapu Kinimaka-Alquiza and her halau (hula school) Na Hula O Kaohikukapulani practicing “Aloha Waimea I Ka Wai Kea” on the south shore of Kauai near Hanapepe. “Aloha Waimea” is a mele (chant) that tells of the beloved white waters of Waimea in west Kauai.
It would be difficult to find a video of Hawaiian music and dance that is as authentic as this one is.
