Kekuhi Kanahele sings on Sunday.

Liberty House
hosts concert series

Kekuhi Kanahele is the first artist featured in a new free concert series at Liberty House Ala Moana. One Sunday each month, at 1 p.m., the store will present a half-hour Sunday Jam featuring Hawaiian musicians in an intimate setting.

The inaugural concert this weekend presents Kanahele, a singer, composer, teacher, dancer and cultural expert whose latest release, the CD "Kekuhi," was a collaborative effort with her composer husband Kaipo Frias. Kanahele will be available for autographs for 30 minutes following her performance. Her presentation will take place on the third floor of the store.

Wade Cambern of Hawaiian Style Band and A Blue Canoe will present his contemporary Hawaiian sounds on May 30, and Mike Kaawa, who has played with some of Hawaii's best-known entertainers, performs traditional Hawaiian numbers on June 27.
