Papa Hehi



Introducing the first non-stringed instrument produced by Kanileʻa, the Papa Hehi. This native Hawaiian Hula implement predates the ʻukulele by hundreds of years, and is an implement in traditional Hula. In Hawaiian, Papa means “board” and Hehi means “to step on it”, and this implement is used as a percussive implement in highly elevated mele.

The Kanileʻa Papa Hehi is made from the same Koa we use for our other instruments.
