Kawika Alfiche and Halau o Keikiali`i 

Sapphire Room, Saturday, May 5

Until a revolution in 1893 deposed its final monarch, Hawaii was an island kingdom, and it took another 66 years before the archipelago transitioned from an independent republic to a U.S. state. Both its geographic isolation and its unique history make the islands a fascinating place, and Kawika Alfiche—recording artist, hula instructor and director of the Kaululehua Hawaiian Cultural Center in California—a magnetic performer and ambassador of Hawaiian culture. Alfiche and his hula school, Halau o Keikiali`i, will take the Sapphire Room stage Saturday, May 5, for a night of music, Hawaiian storytelling and more. The San Francisco-based troupe has performed worldwide, making stops as disparate as Japan and Broadway in New York City. To get a preview of the night, join Alfiche and company at the Red Rock Church on South Roosevelt Street for dance and culture classes from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
