Paul Punahele Andrade was born on the Island Of Hawai’i and was raised in Puako and Honoka’a, Hawai’i. As a young child he was interested in all things Hawaiian. He studied traditional Hula Kahiko and Hula ‘Auana for seventeen years and today he is a kumu hula ( hula teacher) with his own Halau Na Lei Punahele. For the past 5 years he has begun to study the art form of traditional Hawaiian massage of spiritual cleansing.

Punahele studied Hawaiian language, poetry, art, flora and fauna and Hawaiian music at the University Of Hawaii at Hilo. He has a great sense of place and respect for the land, sea and Island and he never takes his island home for granted. Punahele has shared his home, its beauty, history, flora and fauna with visitors from all over the world and he believes that the greatest thing in life is the spirit of aloha.
