SPECIAL TO NHN
Back by popular demand, The Brothers Cazimero will be performing at the Kahilu Theatre on Saturday at 8 p.m.
Accompanying these consummate performers in song and dance will be acclaimed international Hula Artist, Singer and Musician — Nani Lim Yap.
Masters of their craft — their musicianship and stylish vocals blend to produce a style that is now part of the fabric of Hawaiian history. Their contribution to Hawaiian music and dance has continued to show outsiders to the Hawaiian Islands, as well as indigenous people how important these components are to the past, present and future of Hawai’i.
The components of the past play an enormous role in all aspects of The Brothers Cazimero performances. Their presentation of chants, dances and songs of their ancestors serve to honor those musicians, composers, teachers and elders who paved the way for what they are able to accomplish in Hawaiian music today. As they honor the past, so do they continually look to explore new music and dance forms while remaining true to their heritage.
The Hawaiian musical duo IS made up of Robert Cazimero on bass and Roland Cazimero on 12-string guitar. Robert also plays piano as a solo musician. Their music has been celebrated around the world. The Hawai’i Academy of Recording Arts (HARA) has honored the Cazimeros with 25 Na Hoku Hanohano Awards. Robert and Roland have also received individual Hoku Awards as solo artists.
Their musical talent, incredible showmanship and infectious humor have bridged cultural gaps that naturally exist with ethnic music and dance. The aloha spirit that remains an integral part of their entertaining is spreading throughout the global village and with it, a better world is possible.
The Brothers Cazimero is generously sponsored by Mollie and Jim Hustace and Sharon and Randall Cislo. The Kahilu Theatre Foundation is supported by the State Foundation for Culture and the Arts through appropriations from the State Legislature; by the National Endowment for the Arts; by the grants from various charitable foundations; Hawaii Tourism Authority; County of Hawaii Department of Research & Development; and by individual and corporate donations.
