E Komo Mai . . . Come and enjoy an evening of hula with Hālau Ulumamo o Hilo Palikū, under the direction of Kumu Hula Mamo Brown. A life-long resident of Hilo, Mamo was formally trained by Nalani Kanaka'ole and Pualani Kanaka'ole Kanahele of Hālau o Kekuhi in the 'ai ha'a or low bombastic style of hula. After her uniki (graduation), she started her own hālau and is carrying on this traditional form of hula. The hālau will perform Pele and ma'i hula and the audience will have the opportunity to learn a Halema'uma'u hula.
