The Brothers Cazimero and Kaumaka‘iwa Kanaka‘ole headline the second Moonlight Mele on Bishop Museum lawn, part of its summer concert series.
Aerial performers from Samadhi Hawaii will perform ring, silk and trapeze numbers from a large free-standing rig next to the main stage during specific times in the Cazimeros’ and Kanaka‘ole’s sets.
Other guest artists include Cyril Pahinui and hula halau Pua Ali‘i ‘Ilima.
The concert gets its theme from the second level of the newly restored Hawaiian Hall — “Wao Kanaka,” representing the realm where people live and work. The evening’s events will focus on the importance of the land and nature in daily life. There will be a Night Arts Market featuring artisans demonstrating their skills in traditional Hawaiian crafts, and unique pieces will be on sale.
Audiences will be encouraged to explore the Hawaiian Hall Galleries during the first part of the evening, with entertainment offered in the courtyard as well as the main stage on the lawn.
Food on sale will include healthy Hawaiian plates from Hale Kealoha Ai Pono, Mexican cuisine from Cha Cha Cha Salsaria, and Vegetarian Thai fusion cuisine from Happy’s Hawaii Green Catering, as well as paletas (popsicles) by Onopops and snacks made on site by Kettle Corn Hawaii.
Beach mats will be provided free of charge and guests are also encouraged to bring blankets or low beach chairs. (Coolers or outside food and drink are not allowed.)
