CAZIMERO BROTHERS TO PERFORM AT OCTOBER 15
ALOHA FRIDAY HAWAIIAN CONCERT
The ever-popular Cazimero Brothers will feature their extraordinary musical talents at the next Aloha Friday Hawaiian Concert, to be held next Friday (October 15) at the newly-restored Mission Memorial Auditorium next to Honolulu Hale.
The free concert, sponsored by the City and County of Honolulu, will start at 6 p.m.
Robert and Roland Cazimero are consummate performers who have left an indelible imprint on contemporary Hawaiian music in a successful partnership that has spanned more than 30 years and produced 36 CDs. These respected entertainers are credited with helping to spark a resurgence of interest in Hawaiian culture and music, exploring new song and dance forms while remaining true to their heritage.
The Concert will also feature Halau Na Kamalei, which is under the direction of Robert, a kumu hula. Halau members dance and sing with voices that one entertainment critic described as “virile, stirring, romantic, enticing, depending on the mood.”
The Mission Memorial Auditorium recently underwent a yearlong renovation to restore it to its original use and elegance. It is one of three distinctive red-brick buildings located on the Civic Center grounds that once served as the headquarters of the Hawaii Evangelical Association, part of the Hawaiian Mission Children’s Society.
Doors open at 5 p.m. Seating is on a first-come, first-seated basis.
Free parking is available at the Civic Center Parking Structure, with entrances off Alapai and South Beretania streets.
The next concert of the Aloha Friday Hawaiian Concert series at the Mission Memorial Auditorium is scheduled for November 19, and will feature Hapa and Ka Leo O Laka I Ka Hikina O Ka Lâ, under the direction of Kumu Hula Kaleo Trinidad.
