Pearls from the Sea-EDUCATIONAL

This 50-minute documentary is most memorable for the lively, fast-paced performances of the dancers of the California-based group, Te Mana 'O Te Ra. Te Mana 'O Te Ra have performed throughout the United States as well as in Hawaii and Tahiti, itself

All numbers are accompanied by live music under the leadership of Rey Aguilar; the dancers are directed by his wife, Lisa Aguilar. In addition, the documentary features a section of performance by the Tahitian group from Hawaii's Polynesian Cultural Center - not to be missed!

In addition to the dance and music, we interview the Aguilars and also, through narration, provide some history of both Tahiti itself, and its music and dance tradition. These are illustrated with photographs, period lithographs, and the like.
