Synergy is the only way to describe the high-energy performances of Hawaiian music legend Brother Noland and internationally acclaimed saxophonist Michael Paulo. For decades, these two high-impact artists at the forefront of their musical genres have continued to innovate and share their musical styles. After Michael returned from London and Indonesia and Noland completed a North American tour, they decided to put together a show that had been long overdue. By merging their sounds with a world-class band as backup, Brother Noland and Michael Paulo will produce a historical performance you will not want to miss.
Brother Noland is a legendary 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.” He has been awarded multiple Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards, and he also received both the Slack Key Legacy Award (2018) and the Lifetime Achievement Award (2019) for his dedication and commitment to Hawaiian music.
Along with his award-winning music, Brother Noland’s achievements and contributions go deep into Hawaiian culture as he’s continuously contributed his skills as an author, artist, poet, philanthropist, mentor, musician, and teacher every chance he gets. He has long been a staple of the islands, and his legend reaches far and wide. The world of Brother Noland is that of a pure Hawaiian vision.
Michael Paulo has been one of the most versatile and cosmopolitan saxophonists in pop, soul, and contemporary jazz for nearly 35 years. Paulo grew up in a musical family (his father was a pianist and his mother a singer) but did not take up the saxophone until he was 15. Paulo became a member of the Hawaiian pop/rock band Kalapana (1975-79), recording four albums with the group. He also recorded with Herbie Hancock during this period.
On-Demand tickets for this show are $19.99 and available at Kahilu.TV.
