With Hula and Song
Let us bring the Islands and "The Heart of Aloha" to you through the Ancient Storytelling and Heartbeat of the Hawaiian people - Hula.
Forget the “little grass skirt”. The moment you hear Kaleo Wheeler's trained voice soar with a Hawaiian chant or song and experience her sharing Hula, their indigenous dance and ancient form of storytelling, you will be transformed to the natural heartfelt beauty of Hawai’i and the Aloha Spirit. Whether it is in the small intimate setting of a private party/house concert or a larger event with hundreds of people; Kaleo is fully present in the world of the story she is telling. Through the Hula or song she is sharing, she draws the audience in to open their hearts and be part of that story with her. You will find yourself on a journey back in time from ancient to modern Hawai’i. Hula is their living history, telling their myths and legends, stories and values through traditional songs, chants and music accompanied by dance.
Through sharing the uplifting and inspiring stories of Hawai'i, Kaleo gives people a “time out” from all the stress and concerns in today’s world. The audience returns home feeling more relaxed and at peace within themselves.
“Kaleo's kind spirit & the gentleness of her words in her songs and stories made our hearts rejoice…after the show, there were smiles on everyone’s faces. It was as if our spirit was lifted up."
During the event, audience members are encouraged to participate in learning a hula. if they are too shy or unable to get up, that is no reason why they still can't learn a little hula. The storytelling of hula is done with the arms and hands, and anyone can do that, even sitting. This is always a fun part of the experience and enhances the enjoyment for everyone there, whether they are participating or watching. Kaleo often has several of her advanced students (Haumana) joining her. You will experience a memorable party that your guests will enjoy and will always remember.
Kaleo shares her Hawaiian Storytelling at weddings, birthday parties, anniversaries, retirement homes, casual backyard luaus as well as at church, corporate and school events. Her stories, authentic costumes and island music will have you feeling like you are in Hawai’i.
Don’t miss a delightful evening and opportunity to experience this talented musician and storyteller in a live setting, creating a dynamic and enriching experience for everyone there.
