The sound of the pu or conch shell is heard as owner Kuiokalani Gapero of Mamolii Productions opens this week’s Hawaii’s Wedding Professionals. Set against the majestic mountain range of Koolau Ballrooms and Conference Center, host Kahu Kalehua Featheran begins by asking Kui to share a little about his background and company with the viewing audience.
Originally from Maui, Kui attended Kamehameha School, where he started dancing hula and he loved it so much that it became an integral part of his life. In forming Mamolii Productions in 2008, Kui’s vision was to portray his culture as best as he can with as much authenticity as possible in the hula and dances of Tahiti and Aotearoa (New Zealand). Tune in to the show to learn about the pu (conch shell), ipu heke (gourd), puili (split bamboo) and uli uli (gourd rattle). Mamolii Productions offers vignettes of 15 minutes to a full Polynesian Show, awa ceremonies, full sound systems, conch shell blowers, lei greeters, bartending services and much more for both wedding and other events.
Richard Li of Kahala Limo drives up to meet Kalehua in one of his luxury cars – a 1985 Rolls Royce. He also has a Bentley, 2 Mercedes Benz and a Range Rover to offer for any transportation need – for the wedding couple on their special day, for airport/hotel/home pick up, corporate events, proms, Valentine’s Day or even for a special dinner so clients can enjoy a night out on the town and not worry about driving home safely. Richard feels his vehicles offer another option besides a limousine that is more intimate and unique.
Viewers must tune in to hear Richard’s story about how he received the opportunity to change his life – fascinating!
Also, the music you hear in the background of the interviews is being provided by Kupaoa – mahalo
