$20

Use the promo code ​HULA for the special deal of $20+HST tickets!!!

A modern transgender Hawaiian (mahu wahine), Kaumakaiwa Kanaka’ole (Kao-mah- kah -EEvah Kah- nah – kah -OH-ley) is a vibrant keeper of culture and a fun authentic innovator. She engages indigenous thought to address today’s issues through music, chant, and sharing of spirit. With plenty of humor, she provides wry commentary and stories to give context to her songs. Award-winning musician and producer Shawn Pimental accompanies her on guitar and backup vocals.

“Kanaka’ole…vaulted through various registers and timbres, from bass to witchy contralto rasp to sweet soprano, a traditionalist tour de force.” –The New York Times

Kaumakaiwa Kanaka’ole is a riveting performer and the voice of Hawaii’s new generation! She creates some of the most original work to emerge in contemporary Hawaiian music, drawing from ancestral memory and hula practice as chant transforms to melody. Kaumakaiwa seamlessly melds Hawaiian culture and modern sensibilities in deeply powerful music.
