Revered Hawaiʻi Kumu and singer Robert Cazimero will perform at Kahilu Theatre on Saturday, May 13, at 7 p.m. His return to Kahilu will continue a 32-year-old tradition of celebrating May Day in Waimea.

“Waimea is one of my favorite places in Hawaiʻi, and it’s always such a pleasure to perform for the folks (many I consider family),” said Cazimero. “It wouldn’t be spring without this concert, and I relish our time at Kahilu Theatre, one of the best venues in Hawaiʻi!” 

Cazimero’s distinctive and compelling voice is recognized whether he performs on piano or with his brother Roland as the Brothers Cazimero. The award-winning singer has participated in nearly forty full album projects, many of them considered classics in Hawaiian music history. He has also performed on the world’s most prestigious stages and sold millions of albums across the globe.

In addition to his musical background, Cazimero has studied the art of hula for decades. He has also been an essential influence in the evolution of modern Hawaiian music, bringing the genre to other continents and popularizing it through his performances.

Doors will open at 6 p.m. for the May 13 performance. Tickets are $68, $58, $48, and $20, available for purchase online, by calling (808) 885-6868, or at the Kahilu Theatre Box Office, Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
