This program is free with paid Museum admission.

Developed generations before the ʻukulele, the ʻūkēkē, or Hawaiian musical bow, is Hawaiʻi’s only indigenous stringed instrument. Learn about this not widely known yet once-treasured musical instrument primarily used for hoʻoipoipo (courtship and romance)and to accompany hula, mele, and oli. Few people today have seen, heard of, or know how to make and play this instrument. Attend this program to see, touch, and play this unique Hawaiian stringed instrument.

The Bishop Museum Living Culture series and workshops are supported by Hawai‘i Tourism through the Kūkulu Ola Program.
