Hawaiian Music Live presents a special live streamcast ON Saturday, August 12th starting at 10am (HST) from the 2nd Annual Papakolea Pa`ina featuring Pomaika'i Lyman and the Keawe Ohana, Keauhou, Kuana Torres Kahele and Natalie Ai Kamauu!
The Annual Papakōlea Pāʻina is scheduled for Saturday, August 12, 2017, and confirmed artists are Keauhou, Kuana Torres Kahele, Pōmaika‘i Lyman & the Keawe ‘Ohana, and special guests. The Pāʻina is a timely celebration with Keauhou, a fresh new trio comprised of Kahanuola Solatorio, Nicholas Lum, and Zachary Lum, earning nine awards for their debut album at the 40th Annual Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards Celebration on May 20th.
The theme, E Nānā I Ke Kumu, is representative of our practices in Papakōlea – taking the ʻike (knowledge) of our kūpuna (ancestors), and sharing it with others, so our present-day practices remain authentic and vibrant. Last year, the Pāʻina served as a fundraiser for Mrs. Pōmaika‘i Lyman, 2016 Mrs. Hawaii International, in her bid for the international title. This year, the 2nd Annual Papakōlea Pāʻina proceeds will support the Papakōlea Community Scholarship Program, and other educational activities.
