Kahilu Theatre is delighted to present multi Nā Hōkū Hanohano award-winner KIMIÉ MINER performing LIVE from Kahilu Theatre on Saturday, January 8, 2022, at 7pm HST. Following her concert, there will be a talk story with Kimié.

Singer-songwriter Kimié (pronounced Kim-mi-Yay) Miner creates an inimitable musical style that dresses the listener in a flowing mu’umu’u on a cool beach easily mistaken for paradise. Growing up on an island, surrounded by the ocean, is a formative experience that can be heard throughout her work; it gives her songs a loose, down-to-earth feel, and imbues her lyrics with natural imagery that transcends ethnicity, gender, and age. Her parents, of Hawaiian and Portuguese descent, noticed her affinity for music at a very young age. At the age of 14 she-taught herself to play guitar and began writing her own original songs, finding inspiration in wide range of music from Hawaiian, jazz, and R&B-influenced individualists like Israel Kamakawiwo'ole, India.Arie, Lauryn Hill, and Eva Cassidy.   

Kimié champions the idea that one should remain true to who they are and to approach their experiences with the pride of their heritage. Her songs regularly evoke the Hawaiian concept of the Piko: the “naval” or “center” which represents a home base to which one can always return. She notes that “As Hawaiians, we have our roots and our routes. We know who we are, and we take that knowledge with us when we navigate and explore the rest of the world.”
