Picnic for Poki Hawaiian music concert in Historic Wailuku
Roselani Place and Ola Na Mele Productions invite you to a Picnic for Poki at 11:00 AM at the Historic Kaahumanu Church in Wailuku Town, 103 South High Street on Thursday, August 17, 2017. Our featured guest with live Hawaiian entertainment will be the Uncle Richard Ho’opi’i.
Uncle Richard Ho'opi'i is one of Hawai'i's most beloved singers. Best known as one half of the popular Maui duo, The Ho'opi'i Brothers, he has practiced the traditional Hawaiian art of leo ki'eki'e (falsetto) for most of his life. He and his brother, Solomon (his life-long singing partner) were recipients in 1997 of the prestigious National Endowment of the Arts Folk Heritage Fellowship, America's highest honor for traditional artists.
Roselani Place, Maui's premier assisted living community, will have fresh baked cookies, coffee, and water. Attendees should bring a lawn chair or mat and their lunch and most importantly, bring a friend.
Picnic for Poki is held every third Thursday on the month to continue bringing the spirit of aloha and Hawaiian music to the Maui community in honor of the late Allen "Braddah Poki" Pokipala. Braddah Poki was dedicated to sharing Hawaiian music and culture throughout various venues in Hawaii. For more information call 871-7720.
