LAHAINA – Join the Matagi Trio at Lahaina Restoration Foundation’s free monthly Hawaiian Music Series concert on Thursday, March 26, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on the Baldwin Home Museum lawn at the corner of Dickenson and Front streets in Lahaina.

Meaning “wind” in Samoan, Matagi is the name of a trio of Maui musicians: Marvin Tevaga, Kalani Miles and Kimo Brehm.

They have performed together for years at venues throughout the island, pleasing crowds with a variety of musical genres while sharing vocal harmonies and rhythms.

“Like the wind is ever-changing, so is our performance as you listen to songs from old, new, Hawaiian, contemporary, country and so on,” said Tevaga.

Tevaga’s love for music began at the young age of eight, when he picked up the ukulele for the first time. He has been perfecting his talent and performing ever since.

As a Samoan growing up in Hawaii with many diverse cultures, he appreciates various genres of music and redefines songs in his own style. He regularly entertains as a wedding musician.

Also Samoan, Miles is an accomplished guitarist who enjoys performing for couples during their wedding ceremonies.

Maui native Brehm, bass guitarist, performs at island weddings and baby luaus.
