Sweet Harmonies of Kaiholu Fill Atherton for First Time Nov. 29

Winner of the prestigious Ka Himeni ‘Ana Hawaiian music competition in 2009, Kaiholu makes its HPR Atherton Studio debut on November 29. The quartet (Nathaniel Mahealani Stillman, Trax Enos, Albert Rowland Jr., and Henry Hanale Ka‘anapu) is known for its vibrant sound and rich harmonies reminiscent of the Sons of Hawai‘i. Their name, taken from Enos’ middle name, means “swaying sea,” which is also the name of their self-produced debut CD released in 2013.

Tickets for Kaiholu’s premier Atherton concert are $30 general, $25 for HPR members, and $15 for students with ID. The Atherton regularly sells out and patrons are advised to reserve their tickets early.
