Contemporary Hawaiian musicians, Cecilio & Kapono, are sharing early Thanksgiving cheer with the homeless community and transitional residents of Maui County.  The duo will visit Wailuku’s Ka Hale A ke Ola Homeless Resource Center on Friday, November 20, 2009, where they will perform a free concert and talk story with residents.

The visit has become an annual holiday tradition for C&K who will also perform at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center this Saturday.  Earlier this week the musicians visited Molokai as part of the center’s Artist in the Community program, which involved working with music and Hawaiian language immersion students from Molokai High School.  C&K finished their Friendly Isle visit with a free concert for the entire community in Kaunakakai on Monday.

“Every year we look forward to visiting Maui to perform at the MACC,” explained Cecilio Rodriguez. Henry Kapono added, “But our favorite thing about this visit is participating in the Artist in the Community program because we get to meet so many island residents up-close and personal. At first we thought we were giving something to the community, but it turns out we get just as much as they do—maybe even more.”
