It was held for the first time in Japan (probably the world’s first?) on September 16, 2021.

Japanese traditional performing arts; Gagaku and Hawaiian traditional performing arts: Hula fusion event.

Without the huge support of the priest and the gagaku band at the annual festival, this event couldnʻt be possible. Thank you so very much for those who dedicated the huge amount of time to make this happen.

Cultural exchange between Japan and Hawaii, knowing each culture will lead to your own growth, and Kumu want you to feel a lot of commonalities between Japan and Hawaii through culture.

With that in mind, Kumuʻs challenge will continue!
