Let us bring the islands of Polynesia to you.
A uniquely put together ensemble of music and dance. Combining our Polynesian heritage with a mix of songs from the 60s right through to contemporary music, highlighted with the graceful motions of the hula dance and presented with a background of live musicians playing traditional and modern instruments. For added elegance our girls will wear the long Hawaiian gowns as well as the expected grass skirts - creating Hawaiian and Polynesian ambiance at our events. Our musicians are adept at what they do and will present and play long accepted instruments like the Hawaiian and Tahitian ukulele, the Lap Steel guitar, Slack Key guitar and the percussion instruments like the pate and toere. There will be familiar tunes and songs like Blue Hawaii and Hanalei Moon, Somewhere over the Rainbow (Iz Kamakawiwoole stlye) and extend back to our ancient Hawaiian chants, hula kahiko and even Maori haka intertwined into the presentation. Our production will impress.

Unique Selling Point
All instruments are played live, all singing is live - the presentation is authentically Polynesian created by and of a Hawaiian choreographer and Maori musical Director. Costuming is bright but natural. We believe we are the only Polynesian show that does not use backing tracks. We are versatile and can move the performance in a direction to which the audience directs. We believe the large cross section of music which intertwines with the dances cover such a broad range of ages.
Audience participation - come dressed in costume, make their own leis and headbands, competitions for best dressed, opportunities to participate in a hula dance.
We can run hula classes perhaps before the show and get the participants to dance during the show - the musical Director may compose a short musical piece addressing the town, region or area where the performance is mounted.
