Haku Mele Workshop Original Compositions

 
Enjoy an evening of music by local island songwriters. In August 2012, the park sponsored its first Hawaiian Music Songwriter's Retreat.

Original Hawaiian compositions were created through experiential and interactive presentations and small group sessions in songwriting. Featured artists for the evening's program will include Kauhane Heloca, Ida Hanohano, Desiree Cruz, Doodie Downs, Ku'u Makuakāne, Ali'i Keanaaina, Pililani Pua-Kaipo and Olanui Robbins. Kenneth Makuakāne closes the evening with a special concert.
