Merrie Monarch 2013 — Get the KE AO HULA App!!

As Merrie Monarch celebrates its first half-century, it enters its second half-century in the world of digital environments with — an app!  Available on iTunes App Store for iOS–thatʻs iPhones and iPads–the app links users to databases of information about hālau, kumu hula, and the mele they will be presenting in the competition. This is a handy companion to have when watching the TV or internet broadcast! Of particular interest is the profiles of dancers and musicians, giving a deeper view of the participants beyond the kumu hula. 

While launched in time for Merrie Monarch, a quick look reveals that the app has aspirations to become an information hub for hula events generally.  An especially cool menu option, under “Shop,” presents a selection of native Hawaiian businesses.
