ISLANDS IN YOUR EYES celebrates favorite islands and will feature segments paying homage to Hawaii Nei, England, Tahiti, Japan, Manhattan and, as Robert puts it, “the Island of Me.”
ISLANDS IN YOUR EYES stars the award-winning Brothers Cazimero and features Robert Cazimero’s Halau Na Kamalei O Lililehua and the Ladies of the Royal Dance Company. Special guest performances will include Ryusei Taiko Drums; Tahitian styling from Tara Ta Manu I; hula stylings by the Kalanimoku Dance Company from Japan, Michelle Akina and Janu Cassidy from New York, Yume Kitamura and Gavin Ono from Mid-Pacific Institute; and our own Moea De Fries from Hawaii..
The evening’s playlist runs a gamut from Roland’s Beatles medley, “Queen’s Jubilee,” and “Ia Oe E Ka La” (England); “Tu Pae Pae,” “Na Pea,” Tera Mai,” and “Otea” (Tahiti); “Sakura,” “Kan Kan Musume” (Japan); to “New York, New York,” “I’ll Take Manhattan,” “On Broadway,” and “Happy Talk” (Manhattan); Mai Lohilohi Mai Oe,” “Maikai Kauai,” “Island In Your Eyes,” “My Hawaii Nei,” and “Hidden Valleys” (Hawaii Nei).
The musical talent, incredible showmanship and infectious humor of The Brothers Cazimero have bridged cultural gaps that naturally exist with ethnic music and dance. The aloha spirit that remains an integral part of their entertaining, whether live, on records or TV, is spreading throughout the global village and with it, a better world is possible.
Join Robert, Roland; along with the Ladies of the Royal Dance Company, Halau Na Kamalei, and special guests at the historic Hawaii Theatre as we pay tribute to the islands we love… the way that only we can.
