Quote of the Day

Friday, March 2, 2012

Dance like the world is your center stage. 
Liberate yourself. Find your bliss. 
The only thing that stops you is yourself.

What are those?
Oh, they are instruments used by hula performers/dancers.
Uli 'uli (Gourd Rattles; red/yellow feathers in photo) are the most recognizable among hula implements. They are cut from la'amea tree and ali'i poe seeds are added inside to give it a distinct hula sound.  Ipu (Gourd drum; brown objects in photo) is a percussion instrument that provides beat to hula dancing.
