Two-time Grammy Award-winning Hawaiian musician Kalani Pe‘a returns to the Kahilu Theatre, streaming live via Kahilu.TV on Saturday, Jan. 9, 2021 at 4 pm.

Kalani Pe‘a is a singer of power, sensitivity and charisma — and and one of the most promising talents in a new generation of Hawaiian musicians. He has won two Grammy Awards for Best Regional Roots Album, one for each of his two CDs releases, and is the only Hawaiian artist to win in this category.

His first CD also won a 2017 Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award (Hawai‘i’s “Grammy”), making Hawaiian music history as the only album to win both a Grammy and Nā Hōkū.


In 2019, Kalani hit a personal first with his debut appearance at the prestigious Merrie Monarch hula competition, singing two of his original songs for Hula Hālau ‘O Kamuela, which took the top honor at the competition.

Born and raised in Panaʻewa, Hilo, Kalani began singing at age 4 to address a childhood stutter. His natural talent was subsequently recognized in singing competitions, and it has brought him to the forefront of Hawaiian music today. As a singer/songwriter, Hawaiian language practitioner, visual artist and educator, Kalani Pe‘a has been praised for Hawaiian language fluency, songwriting skills and commitment to his Hawaiian roots.

His musical style ranges from traditional chant to contemporary Hawaiian classics, from original compositions and pop songs to R&B. Kalani amazes audiences with his charming and dynamic stage presence.
