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.

I was extremely nervous buying 'Uli 'Uli online without actually having the chance to see nor touch it, especially the since it is over $100+. However, after reading all the detailed description on how it is made, satisfaction guarantee & return policy, I was sold. Once it was delivered, I was so relieved. The quality was impeccable!!! The feathers were lush, the handles were solid and the weight of the rattles were just right.
