Dane Fujiwara, a falsetto singer with an outstanding vocal range, will perform at Lahaina Restoration Foundation’s free monthly Hawaiian Music Series concert on Thursday, June 25, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on the Baldwin Home Museum lawn.

Fujiwara was born and raised on Maui and graduated from Kamehameha Schools Kapālama on O‘ahu.

His natural talent and love for Hawaiian music was strengthened by studying under some of Hawai‘i’s finest artists, including Hoku Zuttermeister and Kuana Torres Kahele.

After graduating, he continued to develop his skills, sharing the stage with Hawaiian musicians Nāpua Greig, Kamaka Fernandez, Ikaika Blackburn and Kamakoa Lindsey Asing.
