"AT HOME IN THE ISLANDS"
Cazimeros evolve into driving force over 35 years
"The Brothers Cazimero: At Home in the Islands," premiering tonight on KGMB, is a candid, revealing portrait of Robert and Roland Cazimero and their 35-year journey from Hawaiian music renaissance upstarts to enduring deans of contemporary island music.
The duo has shared, shaped and put its own spin on the tradition of perpetuating Hawaiian culture by combining hula, drama and modern influences, evolving into the driving force in live entertainment today.
An act for all seasons -- Lei Day, Christmas, Waikiki nightlife -- "The Caz" are known for spontaneity, simplicity and a remarkably fluid performing style generated by only two voices, accompanied by Robert's stand-up fiddle bass and Roland's guitar. On some occasions, there's a hula component featuring "third brother" Leina'ala Kalama Heine.
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Brothers Cazimero have recorded 37 albums in the past 35 years and have performed everywhere from backyards to Carnegie Hall. A new special about their lives and music premiers Thursday at 9:00 PM on KGMB.
The pair grew up in a large musical family. As young students at Kamehameha Schools, they performed with their family's band several nights a week.
Roland describes his life as a child: "It's a kind of funny life I had. I went to school in the morning. I came home in the afternoon. I did my homework, ate something, got dressed, got in the car and went to work and got home maybe about 11 o'clock, sometimes after midnight."
Robert started learning the piano when he was in the third grade. Roland first studied the bass and later the guitar.
