This Valentine’s Day join Town Hall for a performance of Hawaiian music and dance from two undisputed contemporary masters. Kekuhi and Kaumakaiwa Kanaka’ole, a mother/transgender (mahu) daughter duo, will fill the Great Hall with melodies the Honolulu Star Bulletin called “primeval,” in an evening highlighting the unique—and very traditional—mahu individuals of the islands. The winner of five 5 Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards, Kaumakaiwa descends from Edith Kanaka’ole, one of Hawaii’s greatest historical chanters, and has herself been called “the voice of Hawaii’s new generation” by The Honolulu Weekly.

Doors open: 7:00 pm.
