Born and raised in the small plantation town of Kea’au(Ola’a) on the Big Island of Hawai’i, Lito Arkangel has been involved in music most of his life and has been entertaining in Hawai’i professionally since 1999. Working his way from the backyard jam-sessions of Hawai’i, Lito has become well known established full-time entertainer/musician.
Lito is also a devoted husband and father of three children, a US Navy Persian Gulf Veteran(USS ‘Obrien DD-975), a University of Hawai’i at Hilo graduate and also coaches Pony League Baseball and T-ball for the Keaukaha sports program. Lito is also currently lecturing in three departments at The University of Hawai’i at Hilo: Ka Haka ‘Ula O Ke’elikōlani College of Hawaiian Language, Kinesiology, and Performing Arts. Refusing to make teaching a full-time occupation, Lito believes he is making a bigger impact on the youth of Hawai’i by focusing on his passion for music.
Lito is now taking the next step in transitioning into the next level of his career; his debut LP: (Lito Arkangel…Me ke Aloha) has recently been released and is currently making some big waves in Hawai’i as well as Japan and Vegas(see upcoming performances). Working with Grammy award winning Producer/Musician-Charles Brotman(Palm Records), Lito’s LP consists of classic contemporary/traditional Hawaiian songs that not only reveals Lito’s heart and soul but also perpetuates the true and authentic beauty of the Hawaiian culture through music.
