Kamaka Kukona to Headline The Shops at Wailea’s Concert in August

The Shops at Wailea in Honolulu recently announced that popular Hawaiian musician Kamaka Kukona will take the stage on Wednesday, August 16 at 5:30 p.mm at the Fountain Courtyard. 

Concerts at The Shops is a free, monthly concert series that is open to the public and features headlining musicians from all the Hawaiian Islands. This music event occurs on the third Wednesday of every month from 5:30 to 7 p.m. with performances at the main Fountain Courtyard.

Kamaka Kukona, a Na Hoku Hanohano award winner and Grammy-nominated singer, composer and musician, will be performing at The Shops at Wailea alongside his halau [hula school]. 

His debut album received two Na Hoku Hanohano awards as “Most Promising Artist of the Year” and “Male Vocalist of the Year.” Kukona was a nominee in the 57th Annual Grammy Awards and is best known for the way his elegant vocals and traditional sounds create a cohesive and beautiful masterpiece of old and new Hawaiian music.

In a continued effort to give back to the community, The Shops at Wailea supports a different Maui non-profit each month with sixty percent of the special event parking fees going back to the non-profit. August’s non-profit recipient is Assistance Dogs of Hawaii. 

The Shops’ goal is to enrich the community through exploration and discovery in the arts and music while supporting local businesses and non-profit partners. The four-hour special event parking voucher is available for $5 and can be purchased at the non-profit’s parking table.

The Shops at Wailea is a popular shopping and dining destination with more than 70 distinct boutiques, shops, restaurants and galleries.
