Join us for a night of celebration – Hawaiian Style! Friday, July 15, 2011 we come together for a night of Hawaiian music, culture and dance as we celebrate the release of Kawika Alfiche's newest CD – Kale'a. Kawika will be performing songs from the album as well as many other Hawaiian hits. Joining the celebration, Grammy award winning musician and legendary Hawaiian artist, Cyril Pahinui will be performing many hits of his own. Keeping the Hawaiian spirit alive, a hula performance by Kumu Kawika's local Utah halau! Truly a not-to-be missed event!
Cyril Pahinui is a legendary Hawaiian musician who specializes in playing the Hawaiian slack key guitar, or Kiho’alu. He has played Carnegie Hall twice, and contributed to three Grammy award winning albums. Cyril has also recorded over 35 Hawaiian musical releases. Currently, Cyril enjoys passing on his musical knowledge to others through his series of workshops titled: He Huaka‘i e pana ai ke ea.
Kawika Alfiche is a Hawaiian musician and Kumu Hula who’s second CD Kale’a was recently released, & which we will be celebrating at this event. Kumu Kāwika Keikiali’ihiwahiwa Alfiche has been teaching hula and other aspects of Hawaiian culture since 1994 and has been a student of the Hawaiian culture all of his life. Kāwika is the Kumu for Hālau Hula (dance group), Hālau o Keikiali’i, and Director for the Kaululehua Hawaiian Cultural Center. Kāwika spends his life teaching and sharing his culture through the hula.
Don’t miss this once in a lifetime event! When will you ever have another opportunity to experience two widely acclaimed and highly honored Hawaiian musicians on the same night in Utah? My guess is probably never again! This will be one of those events that attendees will be talking about for a long time to come, don’t miss this opportunity!
