Tickets: $17 adv/$20 dos
Husband and wife duo, Kellen and Līhau Paik, have been performing as the duet, Kūpaoa, for over a decade. Through the years, they have been honored to receive multiple Nā Hōkū Hanohano awards for their 6 CD releases including: Most Promising Artist (2009), Best Liner Notes (2010), Island Music Album of the Year (2014), Best Hawaiian Language Performance (2014), and Christmas Album of the Year (2015). The title track of their 2013 album, Bumbye, written by Dr. Puakea Nogelmeier, was awarded the coveted Haku Mele award at the 2014 Hōkūs and Kellen was also awarded the same prestigious award in 2009 for a song that he composed with friend, Iokepa Badis. In 2016, the pair released their 7th album, Hoʻokele, an eclectic mix of songs old and new performed in their soothing signature style. As life-long students of Hawaiian language, they enjoy composing and performing their own original songs, in addition to the time-honored favorites that are loved by all. The word "kūpaoa" describes a lasting, permeating fragrance and it is the couple's hope that their music will linger with you, infusing your heart and mind long after their performance is through.
Hālau Hula O Logo brings to life songs of Hawaiʻi, old and new, through their beautiful hula. Dancers of all ages show their love for Hawaiʻi and Hawaiian culture by embodying the spirit of aloha on stage.
