CJ “Boom” Helekahi – Hana Maui Hawaii

CJ Helekahi is a contemporary Hawaiian musician, singer and songwriter. CJ was born and raised in majestic Hana, Maui. You can catch him performing every week at Hotel Hana Maui in addition to other venues around the islands.

Hāna, Maui. Raw and seemingly untouched. Honest and hospitable. Pristine, gorgeous, rugged, vibrant, majestic and ripe. Hāna is the embodiment of easy-living. And in the words of songwriter and musician CJ Helekahi, a place where you can see the stars at night, the dark side of the moon, and a place you never leave.

Born and raised in Hāna, Maui, the remote small town of approximately 2500 people on Maui’s scenic east coast, emerges a singer/songwriter named CJ Helekahi who has a sound like no other. CJ Helekahi comes from a very large and musical Hawaiian family with a long lineage of talented people. His Grandmother, the late Clara Tolentino, was a famous Hāna entertainer, along with his Aunty G-Girl Keli’iho’omalu, a well-known recording artist, and his mother, Lovey Helekahi, a renowned and long-time performer in Hāna. There is a real pureness to CJ’s voice; an originality that could only come from a place like Hāna. In this land of love of family and sharing, true community closeness and old Hawaiian ways are abound.

Ulalena – A Story of Hawaii’s People

Ulalena – A Story of Hawaii’s People

There is a wind and rain particular to Maui that rises at twilight. It whispers of other places and other times, both mythic and real. It blows between daylight and night, between times and worlds. It is hopeful and cleansing. The ancient Hawaiian name for this wind is ‘Ulalena. It is also the name of the newest and most amazing stage production to come from Hawai‘i in decades.

The power of this production is that it is both universal and intimate. It is born from a mythology populated by beings larger than life representing a natural landscape alive with volcanoes, vast oceans and primeval rainforests. The story begins with the mythical creation of the islands and rolls through successive waves of voyagers who have found their way to these shores. From the first Polynesians to the early European explorers, and finally to us …

Every seat at the Maui Theatre maintains a sense of intimacy and interaction with the performance. Traditional theatre is blended with acrobatic feats of strength and beauty. Hula is combined with modern dance. Rich costumes, lighting and stage design are woven together into a filigree of fantastic images drawn from Hawaiian legend and history.

‘Ulalena explores relationships between people, nature and mythology. The use of metaphors integrates Hawaiian chants and dances, original music and choreography, lighting and projections to support the talents of unique performers.

‘Ulalena is a journey where the moment-to-moment excitement of self-discovery is the destination. ‘Ulalena… The new era of golden people face their future as the ‘Ulalena rain embraces them – their essence and spirit molded into a way of life that is close to nature.
