DID YOU KNOW?
The blues are a historically African-American song form. They are a blend of ballads and field hollers. Hollers were the work songs of the slaves when they picked crops on the southern plantations. These rural roots make it difficult to document the exact origin of the blues, but it also makes sense that the music became so personal. Interviews with surviving musicians tell of them hearing blues sung throughout the South in the early 1900s.
At EHCC we provide a platform for cultural expression. In addition to the visual and performing arts, we offer educational programming and social events from cultures all around the world.
We are excited to partner with Japanese Tea Ceremony master, Phillipe Nault, and Tea Hawaii, both of whom will bring their invaluable expertise in the world of tea to EHCC as we introduce our latest program titled Tea Ceremony.
Idiosyncratic: an unusual way in which a particular person behaves or thinks.
Field: a particular branch of study or sphere of activity.
Our East Hawaii venue hosts a collection of works curated by Living Treasure of Hawaii, Hiroki Morinoue and Artistic director Andrzej Kramarz – invited artists from West Hawaii, appropriately exploring notions of personal space.

DID YOU KNOW.....
There are a few things that are very unique about Cha-Cha. First of all… The hip movement and staccato footwork. It is very, very “Latin”, sexy and sensual. Its unique rhythm and sound is considered very flirty, infectious and upbeat…although it can also sound very nice slowed down. It is a really fun dance and it can really distinguish you on the dance floor.
