Performing Arts Series presents Kalani Pe’a

March 14 @ 7:30 pm

The Performing Arts Series presents Kalani Pe‘a. Three-time Grammy Award winner and 2022 Male Vocalist of the Year of the Hawai’i Na Hoku Awards, Kalani Pe’a is a not-to-be-missed performer. With contagious charisma, a gorgeous voice, powerful presence, and captivating style, this is a performance to remember. Kalani Pe‘a will perform alongside local hula dancers from Ka Pā Hula ʻO Kawaiolanoelaniokane. With his passion for perpetuating Hawaiian lan-guage and culture, his music features his original and classic Hawaiian songs alongside his affec-tionate bilingual (Hawaiian/English) arrangements of his R&B favorites – a nod to the western music he grew up with. Kalani Pe’a made his New York debut to a sold-out audience in 2020, the first Hawaiian artist to perform in Lincoln Center’s American Songbook. Self-described as “Hawaiian contemporary soul”, Kalani Pe‘a was awarded a prestigious Native Arts & Cultures Foundation Fellowship in 2018 and named an Artist in Business Leadership Fellow 2019 by the First Peoples Fund.
