“One of Hawai’i’s brightest new stars…His soulful voice showcases his many influences from classical, R&B, and soul, but his ʻike (Hawaiian knowledge) and love for our culture keeps it right where it needs to be” — Jaz Kaiwikoʻo, producer and radio personality
Kalani Pe’a is a singer of power, sensitivity, and charisma, one of the most exceptional talents in a new generation of Hawaiian musicians. He has won 3 Grammy Awards for Best Regional Roots albums, the only Hawaiian artist to win in this category, and he made Hawaiian music history when his first album also won him a Na Hoku Award (Hawai‘i’s “Grammy”), the only album ever to win both awards. He made his sold-out New York debut in February 2020, the first Hawaiian artist to be presented by Lincoln Center’s American Songbook. Self-described as “Hawaiian contemporary soul”, Kalani’s dynamic and charming stage presence, vocal brilliance, and range of songs from Hawaiian to R&B has brought him to the forefront of Hawaiian music for both traditionalists and a new generation.
