Kuana Torres Presents:

MUSIC FOR THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS
Kahelelani: A Tribute to Ni'ihau

Kuana Torres Kahele Band with very special guests Nalani Keale and Halau Kaulakahi

"Completion of this 7 CD, original music series for the Hawaiian Islands is a personal milestone for me as a haku mele and as a musician. I wouldn't be here today if not for the inspiration and encouragement of my mentors and peers, both kumu hula and musicians. In 2018, I will celebrate the release of these songs with a concert for each island at Blue Note Hawaii. I'm honored to be joined each night with world class guest stars I am truly fortunate to call friends. Please join me for these seven very special shows." - Kuana Torres Kahele

Kuana has been involved in the music and hula scene of Hilo since he was 6 years old. He trained as a kane dancer under legendary Hilo kumu hula Johnny Lum Ho until the age of 13. Once he was discovered to have exceptional musical abilities he was pulled from the hula line and added as a permanent halau musician.

In 1995, at 17, he and fellow Hilo native and falsetto musician, Kehau Tamure, laid the foundation for what emerged as of the most popular Hawaiian Music groups to date, NA PALAPALAI. They released “Makani ‘Olu’olu” in 2002 to meteoric success and raves from critics. Kuana’s original, “Ke Anu O Waimea” is still the most popular hula song in Japan to this day. Na Palapalai has continued to maintain it’s popularity 20 years and six albums later.

Kuana currently maintains his own Hawaiian Music & Culture School in Japan. He teaches in Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka with over 200 combined students. He offers courses in voice, haku mele, mele hula, fresh lei making, ukulele and guitar. He is one of the most popular entertainers performing in Hawaii and Japan. He performs and teaches cultural workshops all over the world.
