Hawaiian Music Series to feature Dane Fujiwara
LAHAINA – Great, live Hawaiian music continues on Front Street, as the Hawaiian Music Series features Maui boy Dane Fujiwara on Thursday, Dec. 26, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on the Baldwin Home lawn in Lahaina.
Fujiwara, a young and talented musician, was born and raised on Maui.
A graduate of Kamehameha Schools Oahu, his love for Hawaiian music was strengthened by studying under some of Hawaii’s finest artists, such as Hoku Zutermeister, Kuana Torres Kahele, Les Cebalos and Aaron Sala.
After graduating from high school, he continued to develop his skills and had the privilege of sharing the stage with Napua Greig, Kamaka Fernandez, Ikaika Blackburn, Kamakoa Lindsey Asing and other great musicians in Hawaii.
In 2009, Fujiwara won the Clyde Kindy Sproat Falsetto and Storytelling Contest on Hawaii Island.
His love for Hawaiian music has provided him with many opportunities to play at various venues and competitions.
When not playing music, Fujiwara is a math teacher at Kamehameha Schools’ Middle School. He is grateful for the talent and skills he has been blessed with, and he is currently working on his debut album.
