We are excited to bring together the very distinct cultures of Polynesia and share them with Southern California!
What We're Up To...
It was an honour to perform at the World Harvest "Run from Hunger" Charity Race on Sept 29th! This event helps raise money for World Harvest Food Bank so they can continue to feed families in and around Los Angeles. We want to give an APA Mahalo to Glen Curado, Founder and CEO of
World Harvest Food Bank and O'ahu local, as well as the host of the event, Q'orianka Kilcher, actor (well known for her role as Princess Ka'iulani in the movie of the same name) and Hawai'i local and activist.
Mahalo for having us!
It is with great sadness that we share the news of the passing of 6-year-old Roxie Forbes. In a tragic turn of events, Roxie drowned at her summer camp pool. We were lucky to perform at Roxie's birthday party and her family has invited us to perform again at
Rally for Roxie
on Saturday, October 12th.
This event is a thank you to the supportive community who has held up her parents during this difficult time as well introducing the foundation started in Roxie's name along with the Rose Bowl Aquatic Center to promote water safety and other great services they provide.
This is a wonderful event to celebrate the life of a fun-loving little girl who left us way too soon. We hope you can come to watch us perform and support this important cause.
The APA 'Ohana sends all our aloha to Roxie's family during this difficult time.
