Big Island artist Keikilani Lindsey will debut his first solo album, Mele‘uhane (Spirit of Song), at ‘Imiloa’s Planetarium, 7 p.m. Friday, May 30.

Lindsey’s new album features 11 original songs and a “haunting” rendition of his great-aunt Helen Lindsey Parker’s ‘Olu o Pu‘ulani, said an ‘Imiloa release.

With a deep affection for the Hawaiian language, Lindsey lends a new spin to haku mele (Hawaiian songwriting) and joins a new generation of Hawaiian storytellers endeavoring to explore many untold tales of the heart, the release said.

Lindsey is a product of five generations of Hawaiian musicians and composers and has been influenced as well by popular entertainers Elton John, Michael Jackson, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Frank Sinatra and Stevie Wonder.

Lindsey continues to work with family and performs regularly with his oldest son Leokani.
