Kuana Torres Kahele @ Merrie Monarch

Kaunaloa

Going to Merrie Monarch? Don’t miss a free performance by Hilo’s own Kuana Torres Kahele at Target Hilo on April 11th at 2pm. Kuana will graciously sign autographs on your CD, so it’s a good time to think about birthdays, anniversaries and house warming presents you need to buy. One of the biggest sellers in Hawaiian music, Kaunaloa from Kuana Torres Kahele. www.mountainapplecompany.com/kuana/

Kuana began his ascent to Hawaiian music stardom with his founding of Na Palapalai and has been the leader of that group’s success for a decade!
