A Step-by-Step-Guide -
Hawaii has a rich musical heritage that is carried on in the rhythmic beat of the ipu and resonant pounding of pahu drums at hula performances throughout the Islands. While many of the musical instruments that accompany hula today can be traced back to early Polynesian roots, others, like the ipu heke gourd drum, ipu hokiokio gourd nose flute and uliuli rattle, are considered to be uniquely Hawaiian, found nowhere else in the world. In the past, the only written information available on making Hawaiian musical instruments lay in the dusty notes of early anthropologists.
