The Brothers Cazimero will perform at Kahilu Theatre in Waimea at 7 p.m., on Saturday, May 10. After performing at Kahilu every presenting season since 1982, this is The Brothers Cazimero’s first performance back on the Kahilu stage following the theater’s intermission.

This contemporary Hawaiian music duo, with Robert Cazimero on bass and Roland Cazimero on 12-string guitar, has been performing together for 35 years. The Brothers Cazimero have charmed sold-out shows from Carnegie Hall to Tokyo with their showmanship and humor. Audiences of all generations are moved by the aloha felt in their music.

Honored with 25 Na Hoku Hanohano Awards and a Grammy nomination, “The Caz” have released more than 35 recordings and three DVDs. In 2006, Robert and Roland were inducted into the Hawaiian Music Hall of Fame.

Getting their start amidst the Hawaiian cultural renaissance of the 1970s, The Brothers Cazimero led the Hawaiian tradition of mele, or song, forward with a modern sound. Today, they continue to infuse elements of the past into their presentation of songs, chants, and dance of their ancestors. Robert Cazimero is also the visionary and kumu hula of Halau Na Kamalei, the first all-male hula halau or school. Members of the halau often accompany the brothers on stage as dancers and as a choral group.

Tickets are $20, $34, $44 or $64 depending on seats. Tickets are available at kahilutheatre.org or call 885-6868.
