Brother Noland and special guests Tony Conjugacion, Sistah Robi Kahakalau, Dwight Kanae, and Kata Maduli will perform at the Kahilu Theatre on Saturday, March 9, 2019 at 7 pm. Brother Noland believes that music can transport you to another time and place—the 50th State of Mind—and wishes to share his music with you and the entire world.
Brother Noland Conjugacion is a legacy Hawaiian artist. He is a composer, innovator, and—as a traditional Hawaiian man—a storyteller. Music is his way of sharing these stories. Born and raised in the Hawaiian Islands, Brother Noland has deeply influenced contemporary Hawaiian music with timeless hits such as “Coconut Girl” and “Big Ship”. Although he is often credited for infusing reggae, jazz and blues with traditional Hawaiian sounds, his latest project “His Songs, His Stories, His Style” proves that Noland can cross many genres as he fearlessly explores the underlying harmonies he wishes to share with the world. “As far back as I can remember,” Noland says, “I was always surrounded by the beautiful sounds of Hawaiian music.” Brother Noland has been awarded multiple Na Hoku Hanohano Awards (the Hawaiian version of the Grammy’s) and most recently he received both the Slack Key Legacy Award (2018) and the Lifetime Achievement Award (2019) for his dedication and commitment to Hawaiian music.
Joining Brother Noland on stage after a hiatus of several years will be the amazing talents of Tony Conjugacion. Tony is an award-winning composer, entertainer, recording artist, Kumu Hula and former original cast member of Broadway’s hit Miss Saigon.Also joining the Conjugacion brothers for this performance is one of Hawaii’s most gifted and unique vocalists ever to grace the stage—Na Hoku Hanohano award-winning musical artist, Robi Kahakalau, as well as the guitar styling’s of Hawaiian slack key master Dwight Kanae and legendary bass player Kata Maduli. Together these legends of Hawaiian music have woven a tale of Hawaiian music history through an evening of traditional and contemporary song and dance.
