The Shops at Wailea welcomes back two-time Grammy Award-winning Kalani Pe’a for a live performance on Wednesday, Jan. 15. The complimentary concert will take place at the main Fountain Courtyard from 5:30 to 7 p.m.
With his 2016 debut album “E Walea,” Hilo native Kalani Pe’a became the first Hawaiian recording artist to ever win a Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award and a Grammy Award for the same album.
His sophomore album “No ‘Ane’i” (We Belong Here) was released in 2018, resulting in his second Grammy Award in the “Best Regional Roots Music Album” category.
Kalani has been praised for Hawaiian language fluency, songwriting skills, and commitment to his Hawaiian roots, as well as a musical range that runs from traditional chant and Hawaiian classics to R&B.
