Starting in the late nineteenth century, Hawaiian musicians began a major movement that spread far beyond their island home. Bishop Museum’s Kaula Piko: The Source of Strings exhibit will, for the first time, present these groundbreaking individuals as more than the virtuoso performers they are already known to be. Their pioneering influence in both performance styles as well as the actual design and construction of instruments is little-known, but is of international significance, and is still with us today. Kaula Piko explores this musical legacy of Hawaii through a detailed lineage of our immense and long-lasting contribution to the world of music. Closed Christmas.
