Prepare yourselves for a memorable evening as Apokolani & Friends stream live on Kahilu.TV on Friday, March 26, 2021 at 7:00pm HST, followed by a live chat with Apokolani. Honoring the special place of Waimea and its waters with a mix of kīhō‘alu, Keoki Apokolani Carter takes the Kahilu stage with Yvonne Yarber (Carter) and special guests Ku‘ulei Keakealani, her daughter Nahe, Keola Grace, and Leila Dudley.
Keoki Apokolani Carter is a songwriter on Hawaiʻi Island who performs most often as “Apokolani.” His original music is composed on baritone ukulele or guitar. Lyrics tell of life, love, spirit of place and each other, with occasional humorous twists. Keoki often writes in collaboration with his “puʻuwai” and vocalist, Yvonne Yarber (Carter). The island sound of Apokolani pushes boundaries, weaving together jazz with island sway— whatever rhythm fits the story— slack, blues, or any kind. Compositions rise up out of his Hawaiian heart, soul, and experiences. From kīhō‘alu with a unique twist, to contemporary guitar and baritone ukulele that melds genres.
This concert is free to all subscribers, and only available to others as a pay-per-view purchase. The original live broadcast will be available to view 24 hours after the initial airing.
