Kulāiwi: Native Lands
Kulāiwi (“land of my ancestors”) combines three of Hawai‘i’s leading award-winning performers for an evening of sweet island harmonies and soaring vocals.
A recipient of over 20 Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards (Hawaiian “Grammy”) with her trio Nā Leo Pilimehana, Lehua Kalima has won an unprecedented three individual awards for song of the year. Six-time Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award winner Kawika Kahiapo is a slack key guitarist and singer-songwriter who has contributed his soulful voice and slack key guitar stylings to more than 108 recording projects. Garnering five Nā Hōkū Hanohano awards, Shawn Pimental has performed with some of Hawai‘i’s leading recording artists, offering his talents on guitar, drums, bass and vocals.
Accompanied by award-winning hula dancer Pono Fernandez, Kulāiwi: Native Lands represents the heartbeat of Hawai'i today.
