Mark Yamanaka, Kūpaoa to Perform at the MACC
Multiple Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award winners Kūpaoa and Mark Yamanaka will join forces to for an evening of inspired composition with exquisite harmonies at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center.
Kellen and Līhau Paik, known professionally as the duo Kūpaoa, have performed together for 15 years. During that time, they have released seven albums and received six Nā Hōkū awards. Life-long students of Hawaiian language, they enjoy composing and performing their original songs, in addition to beloved, time-honored favorites. “Kūpaoa” describes a lasting fragrance, and it’s their hope that their music will linger, infusing heart and mind, long after their performance is through.
Mark Yamanaka’s latest release, Lei Lehua, won five Nā Hōkū awards in 2019. Yamanakaʻs music is informed and inspired by his life experiences. Born and raised in Hilo, his family plays a key role in his success; his two children and his wife providing him the strength and courage needed to persevere in the challenging industry of music. Music is an expression of the heart for this 14-time Nā Hōkū award winner.
The concert will be held on Jan. 31 at 7:30 p.m. in the McCoy Studio Theater.
