The Brothers Cazimero Annual Lei Day Concert at the MACC

April 26, 2012
The Maui Weekly

Celebrating their traditional Lei Day concert at Maui Arts & Cultural Center (MACC), The Brothers Cazimero will fill the Castle Theater with the sweet sounds of Hawai'i on Saturday, April 28.

Masters of their craft, their musicianship and vocals blend to produce a tapestry that is now part of the fabric of Hawaiian history. Robert and Roland Cazimero produce a full-bodied sound that emanates from two traditional instruments--acoustic bass and 12-string guitar.

The Brothers Cazimero are consummate performers who have made their indelible imprint on the face of contemporary Hawaiian music.

Celebrating their traditional Lei Day concert at Maui Arts & Cultural Center, The Brothers Cazimero will fill the Castle Theater with the sweet sounds of Hawai‘i on Saturday, April 28.

For their Lei Day concert, which is the only one in Hawai'i, Robert and Roland will perform a full spectrum of their song catalog while hula dancers from their halau accompany them on stage. This presentation of the chants, dances and songs of their ancestors serve to honor those musicians, composers, teachers and elders who paved the way for what they have accomplished in Hawaiian music and guide the next generation of musicians.

Robert and Roland have released an unprecedented 36 musical recordings since 1975 and three beautifully visual DVDs, including "At Home in the Islands" (2010). Last year, Robert released a solo CD, "Hula," showcasing his soulful vocals. From Carnegie Hall to national television credits, such as the "Today Show" and "Good Morning America," The Brothers Cazimero have emanated the beauty of Hawaiian music and dance to sold-out crowds around the world. Their contribution to Hawaiian music and hula has continued to show island visitors and indigenous people alike how important these components are to the past, present and future of Hawai'i.

Tickets to The Brothers Cazimero Lei Day Concert are $12, $28 and $37 (plus applicable fees). Pre-show dining in the Yokouchi Pavilion Courtyard will be served by Aloha Events Catering, and Hawaiian crafts will be available for purchase from 5 p.m.
