Proarts Hawaiian Arts and Culture Series Presents Lono

Filmed at a live performance on Saturday, April 23rd at 2pm.

Celebrated musician Lono traveled from Moloka'i to join us for our Hawaiian Arts and Culture Series, including a Talk Story with our host.

About the artist: "During my 20 years on Maui I recorded 6 albums up at Melodyline in Pukalani with Tom Hall. The first 5 were island style; then we moved to traditional Hawaiian. Myself, Eddie Kamae and Richard Hoʻopiʻi played for the Kaunoa Seniors throughout the islands.  We have a total of 9 albums in the Hawaiian, 5 in the island style, and 2 live recordings-- 1 here and 1 in Chicago. All recorded during my time as Lifeguard at Kamaole 1 Beach Park and at the opening of Makena Beach. Now here on Molokai we completed 7 more Hawaiian albums of Molokai history and events."
