Uli Uli

Not the best photo I took on this evening, but still one of my favorites because of their facial expressions - I like the way they just look like they are having fun!   What are Uli Uli, you ask?
The Hawaiian version of a shaker is called the Uli Uli, this type of shake is more of a rattle style of shaker with seeds or beads placed inside the Uli Uli to be used in a similar way to a tambourine to follow the tempo of the dance. The Uli Uli is normally decorated with patterns or flowers around the head of the shaker. The Ul Uli is carved out of wood in a sort of bottle shape hence the rattle sound it produces with the beads and seeds. (from Hula-With-Me).
