MERRIE MONARCH 2021 IS GO!

Merrie Monarch IS happening this year, although without a live audience. Hear some organiser and kumu hula mana‘o about the unique challenges and special arrangements this year. Look close and you’ll catch Kumu Rich Pedrina and the wahine of Hālau Hula ‘O Nāpunaheleonāpua in their rather unusual practice space!
