Robi Kahakalau, Kala’e Camarillo to Perform in Lahaina
The Baldwin Home Museum’s free Hawaiian music series will be featuring Kala’e Camarillo and Robi Kahakalau on Thursday, Feb. 27 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Born and raised in Kihei, Maui, Kala’e Camarillo entered the local music scene as the lead ukulele player and vocalist for the band Simply Sedd. Today, he continues to perform with his older brother, Kamaka, as the Camarillo Brothers, and as a solo artist. In 2018, “Working Man” garnered Kala’e a nomination at the Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards for one of Hawaiʻi’s Most Promising Artists.
Robi Kahakalau’s multi-cultural, multi-lingual background is reflected in her music, which ranges from soft Hawaiian rhythms to funky reggae beats, American pop songs to Polynesian traditionals. Kahakalau has since had a very successful solo career, with her albums earning her multiple Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards, including Female Vocalist of the Year. She has also appeared as a featured guest vocalist more often than any Hawaiian recording artist and has toured and performed with Keali‘i Reichel, the Ka‘au Crater Boys, Hapa, Willy K, Henry Kapono, and the Makaha Sons.
Limited seating is provided and blankets, mats and low beach chairs are welcome on the museum lawn.
A paid parking lot is located behind the venue with access from Dickenson Street.
Parking fees from the lot are used by the Lahaina Restoration Foundation to maintain and preserve the many historic sites in Lahaina.
