Item Description

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.

Review from Kailua Kona,Hawaii    02/25/2017
We've found the quality of workmanship in the pu'ili from Aloha Outlet surpasses any other we've used over the years. This is also the only vendor we've found that offers a variety of hand grip diameter sizes and states the sizes in inches. We REALLY appreciate knowing what to expect before we buy!
