PIX: Taimane & Jon in the Studio

Here’s Taimane Gardener and Jon de Mello in the studio making decisions on her first project for Mountain Apple Company. We are getting ready to start mixing the music and once that is complete, the design of the cover and the selection of video will complete the package that will be ready for the public.   

The music is amazing as is Taimane.  The creative combination of Taimane and Jon de Mello is shaping up to be a wonderful musical experience.

The Brothers Cazimero presents “Islands In Your Eyes”

Hawaii Theatre Center presents The Brothers Cazimero in a concert titled ISLANDS IN YOUR EYES on March 23, 2012 at the historic Hawaii Theatre. One show only, Friday at 7:30 PM.

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.

Sponsored, in part, by the Hawaii Tourism Authority City & County of Honolulu Hawaiian Springs Natural Water Mayor’s Office on Culture & Arts Aston at the Executive Centre.
