Hawaii's Arts & Culture: The Expression of Aloha

The diverse culture of Hawaii is expressed in (among other things) language, music, art, theater, dance, film, cuisine, and a multitude of festivals. At the core of each is the spirit of aloha, gracefully conveyed in a painter’s brush stroke, in the fluid arc of a hula dancer’s hands, or in the soft rhythm of a slack key guitar. Warmth, open-hearted generosity, and passion tempered by gentle humor are the primary elements of aloha that distinguish – and unify – the individual components of Hawaii’s Art & Culture.
