Kamakoa Lindsey-Asing and Pi‘ilani Arias to play free concert
LAHAINA – Lahaina Restoration Foundation’s free monthly Hawaiian Music Series continues on Thursday, Feb. 26, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. with a concert on the Baldwin Home Museum lawn at the corner of Dickenson and Front streets in Lahaina.
Join rising stars Kamakoa Lindsey-Asing and Pi’ilani Arias for a fresh take on the traditional music of Hawaii.
Lindsey-Asing’s passion for music started at a young age in Waimea on Hawaii Island, where he grew up in a strong musical background.
These days, Lindsey-Asing is a Maui resident and full-time musician, performing as a guitarist with Napua Greig, Ikaika Blackburn and the band Ekolu.
Most recently, he co-founded and served as music director for Project KULEANA, a community-based effort to celebrate and share Hawaiian cultural vibrancy. The project’s celebrated music video, “Kaulana Na Pua,” featuring Hawaiian artists in a virtual, inter-island kanikapila, has gone viral in Hawaii.
With a love for music that began at an early age and blossomed in high school, Arias of Maui has performed with the bands Pono and Rushouze, and the trio Leohone alongside Ikaika Blackburn and Lindsey-Asing.
As a recording artist, he has played guitar on a variety of artists’ albums and has been working on solo projects.
The combination of Hawaiian music in an outdoor venue, award-winning restaurants and vibrant shops creates a memorable setting for an evening out in Lahaina Town.
Limited seating is provided for kupuna; blankets, mats and low beach chairs are welcome.
This ongoing Hawaiian Music Series program is supported by the Hawaii Tourism Authority and the County of Maui Office of Economic Development.
