In May, the Maui Arts & Cultural Center will present Kawehi, a multi-talented “one-woman band” performing dynamic ensembles using beatboxing, a guitar, keyboard and computer music software.
The Hawaiian independent artist will perform at McCoy Studio Theater on Thursday, May 28, at 7:30 p.m.
Kawehi’s song content centers around social issues and has found success through crowd-sourcing campaigns on Kickstarter, funding four EP albums, a live album, a documentary and national tour. Her songs and videos have been featured in CBS News Most Viral Videos, Vimeo, People, Huffington Post, Esquire, Spin, Maxim and others.
Esquire commented on her artistry: “Kawehi takes the bones of the tune and bends them to her own interpretation.”
