Kaniala Masoe to sing in free concert

By Staff | Apr 7, 2011


LAHAINA — Enjoy great live Hawaiian music by falsetto master Kaniala Masoe at the Baldwin Home lawn on Thursday, April 14, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Bring your lunch, mats, chairs, friends and family for this free treat presented by LRF.

Coming from a talented musical family, Masoe was gifted with the natural talent of singing. The 26-year-old Hilo boy has since blossomed into a versatile musician, hula dancer and accomplished entertainer.

Although he enjoys performing different styles, he is best known for his Hawaiian music. In 1998, Masoe recorded his first album with parents Iwalani and Fono Masoe as Aukahi Pride. Later, in 2002, he went on to win the Aloha Festivals Hawaiian Falsetto competition.

Masoe will be accompanied by the hula elegance of his wife, Melody, for this wonderful display of Hawaiian music and culture.

Relax under the shade trees and enjoy the free concert. Chairs are limited; blankets, mats and low beach chairs are welcome. The Baldwin Home Museum is located in the heart of Lahaina on the corner of Front and Dickenson streets.

This concert is part of the foundation’s ongoing Hawaiian Music Series program supported by the Hawaii Tourism Authority and the county Office of Economic Development.
