E komo mai!

Polynesian Spice is a family owned and operated group that has been bringing island entertainment to Bakersfield for over 20 years. Performing their first show in 1997 under the direction of the founder, Eileen Ki'ilani Caneta, Polynesian Spice has continued to share their Aloha spirit with audiences all over Kern County ever since.

Our mission is to share our appreciation and love of the culture, songs, and dances of the Pacific Islands. As a halau comprised of family (ohana) and Polynesians at heart, our goal is to preserve and exhibit the authenticity of the Hawaiian culture and dance by sharing our Aloha Spirit throughout our community.
