Local musician Kamulela Kahoano has big plans for 2011, including at least two LPs, an original art series, and a jump into the national scene. But you'll be able to catch the son of famed emcee Kimo Kahoano live right here at home on March 24 at the Honolulu Twestival.
Kamuela joins renown dancer and performer Willow Chang as part of the live music program for Twestival. This global charity event is local this year, and will benefit the Blood Bank of Hawaii, raising both funds and awareness to support its life-saving work.
Kamuela was dubbed "the happy music maker" as a symphonic composer at UH, but quickly grew his reperatoire to include 'ukulele, slack key guitar, rock, alternative rock, reggae, and even Hawaiian falsetto.
At 29 years old, he already has over 1,100 gigs under his belt, and has written and co-written over 200 songs. Talent obviously runs in his family. In addition to his celebrated father, his brother is Ikaika Kahoano, of "Making the Band" fame.
Kamuela's unique mix of talents makes for a live experince not to be missed. Get your tickets now, and join us for a fun pau hana gathering on Thursday, March 24. It's $20 in advance, and $25 at the door, and remember: one hundred percent of ticket sales goes to charity!
