Celebrating their annual tradition of a Lei Day concert at Maui Arts & Cultural Center (MACC)--the only one in Hawai'i--The Brothers Cazimero will fill the MACC's Castle Theater with their trademark mele and hula on Saturday, April 27, at 7:30 p.m.
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, the acoustic bass and the 12-string guitar.
Their brand of contemporary Hawaiian music has earned fans from around the world.

The Brothers Cazimero 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.
Likewise, the Cazimeros are guiding the next generation of musicians. Their contribution to Hawaiian music and hula has continued to show visitors to these islands as well as indigenous people how important these components are to the past, present and future of Hawai'i.
Robert and Roland have released an unprecedented 37 musical recordings since 1975 and three beautifully visual DVDs, including "At Home in the Islands" (2010). 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 musical talent, incredible showmanship and infectious humor have bridged cultural gaps that naturally occur with ethnic music and dance.

Pre-show dining in the Yokouchi Pavilion Courtyard will be served by Ka'anapali Beach Hotel chefs from 5:30 p.m. Halau Kekuaokala'au'ala'iliahi will perform at 6:15 p.m. Hawaiian crafts will be available for purchase.
