Grammy Award-winner Kalani Peʻa appearing at free concert in Wailea
The Shops at Wailea is relaunching its free concert series with three-time Grammy Award-winner Kalani Pe’a on July 29 at 5:30pm.
Formerly known as “Concerts at The Shops,” the monthly live music series is now titled “Ke Kani Hone O Wailea,” which means “the sweet music of Wailea.”
The concert series, which returns after a two-year hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic, is part of The Shopsʻ cultural programs that celebrate the aloha spirit and perpetuate Hawaiʻi’s heritage, according to a company press release.
“Offering family-friendly events like this is our way of honoring our Wailea community,” said Diana Whitt, General Manager and Vice President Property Manager of The Shops at Wailea. “Having Hawaiʻi-born and Grammy Award winner Kalani Pe’a perform on opening night makes it truly special.”
Kalani Pe’a became the first Hawaiian recording artist to win a Na Hoku Hanohano Award and a Grammy Award for his debut album, “E Walea.” The Hilo native sings everything from classical, musical, ballads, R&B and soul to traditional and original Hawaiian music, displaying his wide-ranging talents as a songwriter and music composer. Through his music, he shares his soulful voice and love of Hawaiian culture.
The “Ke Kani Hone O Wailea” concert series will be held on the last Friday of each month from 5:30 to 7 p.m. and will feature local artists. The complimentary event will take place in the Lower Valley Performance Area and is open to guests of all ages.
