Rowing into Montalvo Arts from the island of Hawaii with spirited warmth and heart-warming aloha is three-time GRAMMY-award winner Kalani Pe’a. Notably, the wordsmith is the only Hawaiian artist to have won in the Regional Roots category—and Kalani is only getting started. The heart-rending singer-songwriter will expand your musical mind with a performance of his latest Grammy-winning work, “Kau Ka Pe’a.” The work is an amalgam of traditional Hawaiian music with soulful R&B. An emotive vocalist and fluid lyricist, Kalani is a breath of fresh air within the genre—showcasing his roots and reimagining them for a contemporary audience.
