By Staff | Jun 15, 2017

For the concert, Kala‘e Camarillo will be accompanied by Christian Taum and his brother, Kamaka. 

LAHAINA – Lahaina Restoration Foundation’s free monthly Hawaiian Music Series concert will feature the melodious vocals of Kala’e Camarillo on Thursday, June 29, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in front of the Baldwin Home Museum at the corner of Dickenson and Front streets in Lahaina.

Camarillo was born and raised on Maui and comes from a family of musicians and musical educators. His grandfather, George Camarillo, started the first ukulele band in Hawaii public schools and his father, Rama Camarillo, was an ukulele teacher. Kala’e’s great uncle is the late ukulele virtuoso Jesse Kalima, and his aunt is Lehua Kalima, a member of the multiple award-winning trio Na Leo Pilimehana.

Currently, Kala’e performs with his brother, Kamaka, as Da Camarillo Braddahz and with his partner and singer, Layla Hanohano Tripp. In March, Camarillo released his debut album, “Working Man,” featuring original, contemporary Hawaiian songs, which are available for download on digital media outlets.

Limited seating is provided on the lawn; blankets, mats and low beach chairs are welcome. For more information, call 661-3262 or visit LahainaRestoration.org/events.
