Keola Beamer & Henry Kapono 2017


Keola Beamer & Henry Kapono

October 13th, 2017

Hawaiian Legends

We all owe a big mahalo to Keola Beamer and Henry Kapono. Both musicians were at the forefront of a major American musical moment - the Hawaiian Renaissance. In the 1970s, Beamer, Kapono and their peers fused traditional Hawaiian music with laid-back rock. This music was part of a crucial movement to revive language, hula, and other aspects of Hawaiian culture that were fading away. Kapono is a Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter, and was half of the wildly popular Cecilio & Kapono. The New York Times called Beamer &pdquo;the quintessential Hawaiian slack-key guitar master” and his album “Honolulu City Lights” is still the best-selling record in Hawaiian music history, almost 40 years after its release. Take a trip to the islands with these Hawaiian legends — without leaving the state.

Keola Beamer & Henry Kapono is presented by Anchorage Concert Association.
