Kukona, alongside his halau, will perform on Wednesday, Aug. 16, at 5:30 p.m. at the Fountain Courtyard.

His debut album received two Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards as “Most Promising Artist of the Year” and “Male Vocalist of the Year.” Kukona was a nominee in the 57th Annual Grammy Awards and is best known for the way his elegant vocals and traditional sounds create a cohesive and beautiful masterpiece of old and new Hawaiian music.

Concerts at The Shops is a free, monthly concert series that is open to the public and features headlining musicians from all the Hawaiian Islands. The event occurs on the third Wednesday of every month.

The Shops at Wailea continues to give back to the community, supporting a different Maui non-profit each month with 60% of the special event parking fees going back to the non-profit. August’s non-profit recipient is Assistance Dogs of Hawai‘i.


The Shops’ goal is to enrich the community through exploration and discovery in the arts and music while supporting local businesses and non-profit partners. The four-hour special event parking voucher is available for $5 and can be purchased at the non-profit’s parking table.
