  • Kuana Torres Kahele

    Kuana has been involved in the music and hula scene of Hilo since he was 6 years old. He trained as a kane dancer under legendary Hilo kumu hula Johnny Lum Ho until the age of 13. Once he was discovered to have exceptional musical abilities he was pulled from the hula line and added as a permanent halau musician. Kuana’s photographic musical memory allowed the kumu to compose songs and have them recited later, as needed. It became a Hawaiian Music Boot Camp of sorts, training him in the classics of Hawaiian music and prepping him for what was to come as a professional musician.

    In 2011, he released his long awaited solo debut, KAUNALOA. It won every major award at that year’s Na Hoku Hanohano Awards including Album of the Year and Song of the Year. He was applauded for his songwriting abilities and contribution to Hawaiian music. His release was a welcome breath of fresh air in both style and content allowing for the creation of new hula from kumu all over the world. Subsequent blockbuster releases included his “HILO FOR THE HOLIDAYS” Christmas release which later won Christmas Album of the Year and 2013’s self-titled, “KAHELE“.

    Kuana currently maintains his own Hawaiian Music & Culture School in Japan. He teaches in Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka with over 200 combined students. He offers courses in voice, haku mele, mele hula, fresh lei making, ukulele and guitar. He is one of the most popular entertainers performing in Hawaii and Japan. He performs and teaches cultural workshops all over the world.

  • Robert Cazimero

    In the 1970s, Robert Cazimero was instrumental in the resurgence of Hawaiian music and culture. That resurgence began a career that, almost thirty years later, is stronger than ever. Musician, composer, kumu hula, with an elegant voice that is both distinctive and incomparable his work in all of these areas is well-known throughout the world.

    On his own and with his late brother Roland, as The Brothers Cazimero, Robert has released over 30 albums over the past three decades. The success of these records is evident in the high rotation that they shave on local radio today. Fans of Robert and The Brothers Cazimero boast a complete collection of all CDs and tapes. 

    Robert Cazimero is one of the most respected kumu (teacher) of Hawaiian dance today, and his dancers, the men of Na Kamalei, appear around the world in locales such as Carnegie Hall in New York City, the World Expo in Brisbane, Australia, Hong Kong, Tokyo, and annually in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Seattle to sold out crowds.

    The many talents of Robert Cazimero have established him as a benchmark in Hawaiian music and culture.
