Dear Ulu -- I want to thank you for a truly memorable evening (I still high from it). It was a celebration of aloha, a feast of song, hula, and an incredible outpouring from a joyful heart. I cannot pick favorites of the evening because the many elements worked so beautifully together. You flowed from the deep and profound (Colors of the Wind) to the funny (cellophane skirt number with that little keiki between you and Alaka`i wondering why you weren't doing the dance right -- and she was doing it perfectly).
In everything, I was touched by your generous heart and the way you honor those who have influenced you. BUT, if I can name two numbers that put me way over the top, it would have to be Nani Kamakura and the Ka`u song. I know that a lot of Hawaiian entertainers go to Japan without opening their hearts to the Japanese people. Nani Kamakura expresses the way you have allowed your host culture to share its beauty -- I recognized that quality the first time I heard the song. But Sat. night, you described not only the beauty of sakura but also the delight that Japanese people take in it: their love of it was just as beautiful in your eyes.
Oh my, the staging for the song -- Lynn Araki's dance was such a treat, with the hula dancers creating a bridge between the cultures and paying the tribute you have inspired. The "cherry blossoms" were fantastic -- you make great snow bags (what else can you do?!) Your tribute to your own Kumu Pekelo touched me deeply. The stage filled with hula dancers created a visual expression of how brightly the torch he lit burns within you. When he danced the ha`ina with them, it felt like he was honoring you and that the circle of aloha was complete. Well, I gotta go out and malama the land at Ulu Loa, but my heart is joyful recalling Sat. evening -- thank you for its many gifts.
Aloha, Laurie Rohrer, Ululoa Productions

The concert was excellent and was packed with standing room only. There have been very few Hawaiian concerts that have impressed me, but this one did. No question that he had at least 60+ performers that were backed by their family and friends. Too bad we did not have more tickets for some of the other A&B managers. They truly missed out. I am glad that Christy and I were able to go. Christy also thought that it was fantastic. Put my name down for future possibilities.

Loved the concert as did the friend that went with me. Ulu does have a talent for making the audience feel like 'ohana! looked for you after to present a lei but did not see the two of you. My friend needed to get going so we headed home.
Thank you for the
wonderful concert last night at the Maui Arts & Cultural
Center. It was all so beautiful; the dancers, musicians, and the
staging. Very well done! We attended your first solo concert last year;
we did not see how you could begin to match that experience, but you
have. Both concerts were special in their own way. I especially like
the quick little stories you tell about some of the songs you have
written and are about to sing. I think of those stories as I listen to
your songs on the CDs.
Dear Ulu and Pono,
Aloha mai e Pono and

Much love, Cathy ;-)
