Hawaiian Music Series to feature Kulewa

By Staff | Dec 27, 2012

Kulewa’s music is fresh with a local feel and unique sound covering a variety of styles.

LAHAINA – Enjoy the music of Kulewa on Thursday, Dec. 27, on the Baldwin Home Museum lawn from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

Kulewa is made up of Ron Hetteen, Keali’i Lum and Damon Parrilo.

Originally from Washington, D.C., Parrilo moved to Hawaii in 1996 after falling in love with Hawaii’s people and culture.

He formed his own company, Oversized Productions, and is involved with many community and charity events throughout the island.

Lum was born in Honolulu and raised in Lahaina. His talent and skill have allowed him the privilege of performing with Dennis Pavao, Richard Ho’opi’i, Jack Stone and Keali’i Reichel.

Now performing with Kulewa, Lum’s goals are to be a respected musician and share his passion and appreciation for music.

Hetteen, born and raised north of Seattle, Washington, moved to Maui in 1998 as a luau musician and musician for hire.

In 2008, Hetteen met Parrilo and Lum and formed the Na Hoku Hanohano-nominated band Kulewa, which means “slow movement in space like the clouds.”

Relax under the stars and experience this free concert brought to you by Lahaina Restoration Foundation.

Chairs are limited, so 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 Maui County’s Office of Economic Development.
