Robert Cazimero will celebrate May Day in Waimea as part of his 30-year-old tradition.

With his distinct and elegant voice, Cazimero will take the stage at the Kahilu Theatre on Saturday, May 9 at 7 p.m.

Over the course of his career, Cazimero has been part of nearly 40 full album projects. Many of the projects he worked on are now considered classics in the history of Hawaiian music. He has been recognized with countless awards, has performed on the world’s most prestigious stages, and has sold millions of albums around the world.

“Whether you’re going to play at the Carnegie Hall or in Sam Kapu’s garage at Kapahulu, it’s the product and talent and the love that you bring that makes that place a Mercedes or Carnegie Hall. It really doesn’t matter about all the damn accouterments. It’s what you feel and what you bring to that moment,” Cazimero said.

In addition to his singing talents, Cazimero has been a decades long student in the art of hula and has been an essential player in the evolution of modern Hawaiian music and dance across the globe.
