Keola Beamer & Henry Kapono
Mainstage Theatre, 216 Union Street, Seattle
Keola Beamer & Henry Kapono are two legends of Hawaiian music. Each became an icon in the 1970s, both at the creative forefront as Hawaiian music reinvented itself. They have continued to lead the way for over 4 decades.
Despite their common history, Keola & Henry only performed together for the first time in 2014, when Henry invited Keola & Moana Beamer to be part of Back in the Day performances. This successful annual show featured Hawai‛i’s musical greats who shaped Hawaiian music from the ‘70s forward, as part of the “Hawaiian Renaissance” — the seminal movement in Hawai‛i’s cultural history that brought language, music, hula, art, and all aspects of Hawaiian culture back to their central place in the life of the Islands.
Touring together, Keola & Henry with Keola’s wife Moana performing hula, have been greeted by wildly enthusiastic audiences, celebrating their original songs that have become beloved contemporary Hawaiian classics.Share the spirit of the Islands with these Legends!
