Aloha Kaua`i - A Benefit For Flood Victims on Kaua`i

Listen as we streamcast live and bring you this benefit event supporting our friends and families on Kaua`i!

HONOLULU -- “Aloha Kauaʻi,” a fundraiser to support Kauaʻiʻs ongoing relief efforts, will be held in downtown Honolulu on Thursday, May 24, 2018. The eventwill be in the parking lot at Merchant and Nimitz Highway, across from Murphy’s Bar and Grill, beginning at 5:30 p.m. and ending at 8:30 p.m. Tickets ($150.00 per person) can be bought at Murphy’s on Merchant Street or online at Aloha Kauai Tickets.

 

Corporate sponsorships of $5,000.00, which include 20 event tickets, or $2,500.00 for 10 event tickets, are also encouraged.

Kauaʻi’s residents are known for their resilience and willingness to help each other during times of crisis, especially after the devastation following Hurricane Iniki. Once again, they are facing a long road to recovery following the historic flooding on April 15, 2018. They need our kokua!

“Although parts of Oʻahu experienced flood damage from the same storm system that devastated Kauaʻi, we were approached by friends from Kauaʻi, who now live in Honolulu, to do a fundraiser for their home island. Of course, we’re happy to do what we can,” said Don Murphy, one of the event organizers. “We urge everyone to join us in supporting our friends and ohana from Kauaʻi who were so adversely impacted by this recent natural disaster. There will be great food, special local favorites, and entertainment! Your generosity is very much appreciated.”

Co-organizer Kurt Osaki, who was born and raised on Kauaʻi said, “We’re hoping to feature some iconic food items of the island at the fundraiser such as “flying saucers,” “UFO’s,” and other island favorites. Food stations from a number of local Honolulu restaurants will serve their specialty dishes.

Internet radio Hawaiian Music Live, is planning to live stream the event, so people around the world can tune in. Hawaii News Now and Honolulu Star- Advertiser are also partnering to support this event.

Proceeds from “Aloha Kauaʻi” will go to organizations, residents, and businesseson Kauaʻi that need it most or where needs are not otherwise being met by other recovery efforts. A committee of Kauaʻi residents representing different segments of the island, from education, government, businesses, non-profits, community organizations, farmers, and concerned citizens – will review and decide where the funds should be used. They would have the most knowledge of where the needs are greatest.

Those who are unable to attend the event but who wish to support it with monetary donations can mail their checks to: Grove Farm Foundation, 3-1850 Kaumualii Highway, Lihue, Hawaiʻi 96766. Grove Farm Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Lihue, Kaua’i, will be the coordinating entity for the event.

The Ruth B. Shannon Center For The Performing Arts at Whittier College Aloha Concert Featuring Robert Cazimero and Halau Na Kamalei

The Ruth B. Shannon Center For The Performing Arts at Whittier College Aloha Concert Featuring Robert Cazimero and Halau Na Kamalei

2 Shows at 2pm & 7:30pm

In 1975, one man brought about a permanent change in the practice of hula. His name is Robert Cazimero and his vision was Halau Na Kamalei, the only male halau hula in the Hawaiian Islands. Today, Robert Cazimero is considered to be one of the most respected kumu hula of Hawaiian dance. The men of Na Kamalei perform around the world, and for over 40 years, they have carried on the tradition of male hula.

Through the years, Robert Cazimero and Halau Na Kamalei have blazed their journey with Hawaiian pride, dispelling deep-rooted stereotypes of grass skirt girls and coconut bras. The men of hula have swayed the heart of hula by reclaiming the masculine side of the ancient dance.

For Hawaiians, coming of age in the 1970’s was a turbulent time, but for Robert Cazimero it was the time when he discovered himself and his life’s purpose…Hawaiian music and the art of Hula. This discovery has taken him on an amazing journey. While the journey was not without turbulence, his path became clear and he followed it to where he is today; at the top of his game in his music and certainly in the art of Hula.

Robert’s twin passions have always been inter-related. They are the threads that weave the intricate patterns that are Robert Cazimero. His musical talent was recognized at the age of three, followed quickly with piano lessons while still in elementary school where his quickness endeared him to his instructors while his ability to vary and improvise astounded them. Robert’s secondary education required participation in the Kamehameha Schools’ Concert Glee Club and Hawaiian Ensemble. His knowledge of music deepened but more importantly, he came in contact with the person who would serve as his Kumu Hula (hula teacher), Maiki Aiu Lake and just at the right time for the Hawaiian cultural renaissance was blooming.

And so it came to be that at the height of the Hawaiian cultural renaissance, Robert Cazimero was learning the art of hula from one of the most respected masters of the dance form. Already known for changing the familiar sound of Hawaiian music, Aunty Maiki infused Robert with her vision of him starting an all male halau (hula school). Men dancing hula as a halau was something that had not happened in decades. She envisioned men dancing hula with pride and masculine grace and Robert soon shared this passionate image.

Over the ensuing decades Robert has realized Maiki’s dream again and again, dedicating his energy to the once vanishing tradition of male hula. With the knowledge passed on from Maiki coupled with his own talent and passion, Robert has inspired hundreds of men to carry on this magnificent art form.

In 1975 Robert Cazimero created Hālau Nā Kamalei O Lililehua, the only male halau in the Hawaiian Islands. Starting with six students from Kamehameha Schools, his hālau went on to compete at the Merrie Monarch Festival in 1976, the first year kane (men) were allowed to participate, and won the overall men’s award. The hālau also swept the kane divisions and the overall title in 2005, as well as took 1st place in the ‘auana, 2nd in the kahiko and 1st overall in the 2015 Festival. The hālau continues to live by Aunty Maiki’s motto: “Hula is the art of Hawaiian dance expressing all that we see, hear, feel, taste, touch and smell; hula is life.”

Today, Robert Cazimero is considered to be one of the most respected kumu hula of Hawaiian dance. The men of Nā Kamalei perform around the world, and for 40 years, they have carried on the tradition of male hula. Cazimero has taught about 200 students across two generations, with several who went on to start their own hālau.

Robert’s elegant voice is so distinctive that whether he performs on piano or with his brother Roland as the Brothers Cazimero, he is instantly recognized and people are compelled to listen. Recording music has also played a vital part of Robert’s life journey. During that journey he has been a part of close to 40 full album projects; many considered classics in the history of Hawaiian music. The popular success of the music he has made and participated in is recognized through dozens of awards, performances on the world’s most prestigious stages and the millions of albums that have been bought by people around the world.

Robert’s passion and talent have played a huge role in taking Hawaiian music and dance to diverse stages from Carnegie Hall, Wolftrap, Tokyo, and the Hollywood Bowl; his voice has graced the orchestra’s of the New York Pops, the LA Philharmonic, the Boston Pops and of course, the Honolulu Symphony. Hula is always an integral part of these shows as it is in all performances large and small of the Brothers Cazimero and whenever he performs a solo engagement.

While it’s not too early to measure the impact of Robert Cazimero on the world of Hawaiian music and dance, it is way too early for Robert to stop creating for the passion continues as does his life’s journey on the path of hula and Hawaiian music and so we joyously present to you Hula, a collection of some of Robert’s favorite music for the Hula.

Blue Note Hawaii Presents Raiatea Helm

Blue Note Hawaii Presents Raiatea Helm

2 sets: 6:30PM (Doors 5:00PM) & 9:00PM (Doors 8:30PM)

Raiatea Helm

Raiatea Mokihana Maile Helm made history in 2006 as Hawai‘i’s first solo female vocalist ever to receive a Grammy Nomination for her sophomore CD “Sweet and Lovely.”

At 21 years old, she was one of the youngest performers to attend the 42nd Annual GRAMMY® Awards in Los Angeles, California. It was a remarkable achievement when you consider that she comes from the tiny island of Moloka‘i, Hawai‘i, a mere wisp of volcanic land in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

The Arts and Leisure Desk of The New York Times (February 5, 2006) featured a list of Grammy Nominated artists who had produced stunning work but who were likely to be over looked as celebrity public relations machines pushed the glitz of industry icons. The NYT wrote of Raiatea Helm, “[She] sings in the high-voiced throwback leo ki‘eki‘e style without a hint of kitsch. Her second album, “Sweet and Lovely” is poised and utterly elegant.”

With her performing and recording career now entering her seventh year, Raiatea has firmly established her reputation as Hawai‘i’s premier chanteuse. It is undeniable that Raiatea Mokihana Maile Helm will be a part of the national as well as international music scene for many years to come.

Kuana Torres Presents:

MUSIC FOR THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS
Manookalanipo: A Tribute to Kaua'i

Kuana Torres Kahele Band with very special guest Kainani Kahaunaele

"Completion of this 7 CD, original music series for the Hawaiian Islands is a personal milestone for me as a haku mele and as a musician. I wouldn't be here today if not for the inspiration and encouragement of my mentors and peers, both kumu hula and musicians. In 2018, I will celebrate the release of these songs with a concert for each island at Blue Note Hawaii. I'm honored to be joined each night with world class guest stars I am truly fortunate to call friends. Please join me for these seven very special shows." - Kuana Torres Kahele

Kuana has been involved in the music and hula scene of Hilo since he was 6 years old. He trained as a kane dancer under legendary Hilo kumu hula Johnny Lum Ho until the age of 13. Once he was discovered to have exceptional musical abilities he was pulled from the hula line and added as a permanent halau musician. 

In 1995, at 17, he and fellow Hilo native and falsetto musician, Kehau Tamure, laid the foundation for what emerged as of the most popular Hawaiian Music groups to date, NA PALAPALAI. They released “Makani ‘Olu’olu” in 2002 to meteoric success and raves from critics. Kuana’s original, “Ke Anu O Waimea” is still the most popular hula song in Japan to this day. Na Palapalai has continued to maintain it’s popularity 20 years and six albums later.

Kuana currently maintains his own Hawaiian Music & Culture School in Japan. He teaches in Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka with over 200 combined students. He offers courses in voice, haku mele, mele hula, fresh lei making, ukulele and guitar. He is one of the most popular entertainers performing in Hawaii and Japan. He performs and teaches cultural workshops all over the world.

Kanikapila in Kailua Featuring Ledward Ka`apana

Kailua has established itself as THE place on O‘ahu for free Hawaiian music from some of the Islands’ best-known musicians with the Harold K.L. Castle Foundation and A&B Properties, Inc.’s popular “Kanikapila In Kailua” music series.

For more than two years, the monthly celebrations of Hawaiian music and culture have presented such legendary entertainers as the Rev. Dennis Kamakahi, who recently passed away from cancer, 12-string guitar virtuoso Mike Kaawa and Ernie Cruz Jr., a Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award winner and former member of the legendary Ka‘au Crater Boys.

“We are grateful to Kawika Kahiapo, co-creator of this amazing Hawaiian music series, which has made the Windward side THE place for authentic Island music,” said Terry George, Harold K.L. Castle Foundation President and CEO. “Kawika brings together the best musical talent for the enjoyment not only of Kailua residents, but of Hawaiian music-lovers from across O‘ahu. For Hawaiian music, the Windward side has become no ka oi!”

“Kanikapila In Kailua” takes place on one Saturday each month from 4 to 5:30 p.m. in the parking garage near Whole Foods Market in Kailua Town. Audience members are encouraged to bring their own beach chairs, grab their favorite ono food from Kailua’s many great eateries, and sit back and enjoy true Hawaiian music by the Island’s top performers.
