Kalani Pe‘a’s Hawaiian Christmas show is a celebration of the warmth and special “aloha” of the Holiday Season, sharing much-loved songs from both western and Hawaiian roots. A three-time Grammy winner (3 CD releases, 3 Grammys!), Kalani is a charismatic performer with a gorgeous voice, powerful presence, and captivating style not-to-be-missed.
The first Hawaiian performer presented at Lincoln Center's American Songbook (it sold-out), he was recognized by his Hawai‘i peers most recently at the Na Hoku Hanohano (Hawai‘i’s “Grammy”) Awards, winning honors for both Male Vocalist of the Year and Song of the Year. Self-described as “Hawaiian contemporary soul”, Kalani’s dynamism and charm, vocal brilliance, and range of songs from Hawaiian to R&B has brought him to the forefront of Hawaiian music for both traditionalists and a new generation. Kalani will be releasing his first Christmas album in time for the 2023 holiday season.
