Concerts at The Shops is open to the public and is a fun complimentary event with a chance to meet fellow music lovers, visitors, residents, entertainers and listen to Hawaii and the world’s finest entertainers.
Award-winning musical sensation Keauhou brings forth a new era of traditional Hawaiian music. Their passion, under the guidance of akua, kūpuna, ʻohana, and kumu alike, coupled with the inspiration from Hawaiian music of the eras preceding them, drives the trio to offer a seemingly-new sound to the Hawaiian music scene.
The group’s name, aptly translated as “the new/renewed generation”, consists of three graduates of the Kamehameha Schools Kapālama - Kahanuola Solatorio and brothers, Nicholas and Zachary Lum.
This year, the group took top honors at the Nā Hōkū Hanohano awards attaining nine awards in nine categories for their debut album, "Keauhou." Their second album entitled, "I ke Kō a ke Au," features seven original compositions and eight traditional mele Hawaiʻi and was released on October 4, 2017.
Above success, Keauhou hopes to provide a renewed respect and interest for the incomparable beauty of traditional Hawaiian music.
