This indoor Hawaiian concert celebrates a quarter of a century of community building through the arts, and offers the opportunity to experience a HAPA performance in the intimate, yet grand Hoytt Theater.

The stars of the night will be the most recognized name in Hawaiian music; HAPA. Their hypnotic, liquid guitar runs, woven around clear, tenor Hawaiian vocals and immaculate harmonies driven by poetic lyrics, exult the rapture of the Hawaiian landscape, history and mythology.
The evening will include welcoming ukuleles, leis & beautiful traditional Hula dance performance from Halau Hula Na Pua O Ka Laakea . A trip to the islands without leaving the mainland, audience is encouraged to wear their island attire and come enjoy Hawaii’s hottest group!

ABOUT HAPA: Like the Hawaiian Islands themselves, HAPA's Pan-Polynesian music is an amalgam of influences ranging from ancient genealogical chants to the strummed ballads of Portuguese fisherman, Spanish cowboys, and the inspired melodies and harmonies of the traditional church choirs of the early missionaries. Add to this a dose of American acoustic folk/rock, and you have what has been described as, “[the] most exciting and beautiful contemporary Hawaiian music the world knows!”… (Maui Times).
