The Matagi Trio will perform at the Lahaina Restoration Foundation’s free monthly Hawaiian Music Series concert on Thursday, March 26, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on the the lawn of the Baldwin Home Museum at the corner of Dickenson and Front streets in Lahaina.

Matagi (Samoan for “wind”) is the name of a trio of Maui musicians that includes Marvin Tevaga, Kalani Miles and Kimo Brehm. They have performed a variety of musical genres while sharing vocal harmonies and rhythms for years throughout the island.

“Like the wind is ever-changing, so is our performance as you listen to songs from old, new, Hawaiian, contemporary, country and so on,” said Tevaga.

Tevaga performs regularly as a wedding musician. His love for music began when he was 8 years old, when he picked up the ‘ukulele for the first time. As a Samoan growing up in Hawai‘i with many diverse cultures, he appreciates a variety of musical genres, redefining songs in his own style.
