A woman of Pacific Islander heritage dances hula in soft, low-key light on a cloudy evening at a pebbled beach in Washington state. Her ethnicity is part Hawaiian and part Tongan.

One is a traditional Hawaiian musical instrument, the ipu hula gourd drum, which is slapped with the palm of the hand and tapped with the fingers.
