Mahalo for making Robert Cazimero’s concert a huge success!

Robert Cazimero’s latest concert at the Hawaii Theatre was a huge success!

Highlights include a reunion of Robert and Roland with hula by the legendary Leina’ala Heine, a heartwarming tribute to Aunty Genoa featuring Raiatea Helm, Pomaka’i, and Aunty Genoa’s family, and a fantastic performance by rising stars Hu`ewa!

Even foreign countries won’t pay what they collect as we don’t pay their artists for use of their music. The Local Radio Freedom Act aims to continue this cycle and deny fair pay for radio play!
