Two-time Grammy Award winner Kalani Pe’a will headline Hawaii Theatre’s May Day Is Lei Day concert.
Kalani Pe‘a made history early in 2017 when he became the first Hawaii-resident recording artist to win a Grammy Award since Hawaiian music was absorbed by the catch-all Regional Roots Music category. Several months later he became the first Hawaii-resident recording artist ever to win a Grammy and a Hoku Award for the same project. Two years later Pe‘a is back with an award-worthy second album that is every bit as good as the first.
Hawaii Magazine says Kalani Pe’a is in a category virtually all his own. He has the pipes and energetic stage presence of Broadway favorite, Bette Midler.
Pe‘a has risen to be one of the best young Hawaiian singers, bringing a modern sensibility to his own vision of Hawaiian traditions. At this special concert, the Grammy Award Winner will perform brand new original compositions off of his latest release, along with many special guests.
Akahi a hoomaka, this is the start.
