Pu`ili (alt. sp. puili) are traditionally used in love or name chants in the sitting position. Modern hula has adapted pu`ili into standing kahiko and male performances.
Our pu`ili are high-quality, hand-carved, and made from natural bamboo. There are 12 to 13 strands on each pu`ili depending on its diameter. The pu`ili are sold in pairs of matching sizes.
A Hula instrument manufacturer located on Oahu produces these Pu'ilis at their Laos branch.
