Keauhou Trio Shares Joy of Traditional Hawaiian Music, Feb. 26
The musicians of Keauhou find passion and joy in the performance, preservation, and perpetuation of traditional Hawaiian music. The trio of Kamehameha Schools graduates performs this Sunday, Feb. 26, 2017 at 5 p.m. in the McCoy Studio Theater of the Maui Arts & Cultural Center.
Comprised of Kahanuola Solatorio, and brothers, Nicholas and Zachary Lum, Keauhou strives to bring forth inspiration from Hawaiian music of the eras preceding them, and contribute to a renewed respect and interest for the incomparable beauty of traditional Hawaiian music.
The group found their musical roots through their involvement in the many musical and cultural opportunities offered at Kamehameha Schools.
They sang in the Concert Glee Club, played in the band, and both Lum brothers held the esteemed positions as class student director in the world-renowned song contest.
All three are active and passionate educators and cultural practitioners in their field.
In 2008, Keauhou was awarded first place in the unamplified traditional Hawaiian music contest, “Ka Himeni Ana,” held annually at the Hawaiʻi Theater.
Since then, the group has performed at a variety of esteemed public and private events.
With the relationships between them and the guidance of Ke Akua as top priorities, the members of Keauhou hope to offer a seemingly new sound to the Hawaiian music scene, inspired by those who have come before.
