– Hula Master Robert Cazimero
Seven and a half years ago, I could not believe that I was on stage with Kumu Robert Cazimero at The Power of Hula at Ellen Stewart Theatre. Now, we’ve done it again! Only this time, it was even better. To perform among a special collaboration between artists from Hawai’i and New York, under the guidance of N? Kumu Hula Robert Cazmiero, Vicky Holt Takamine, Jeffrey Takamine, and Michael Pili Pang. Lili?u: Tribute to a Queen was unlike any performance New York City has ever seen! It was an honor to be on stage and an experience that I will cherish and carry with me always.
We were invited to perform Hawaiian music with hula dancers on the The Untitled Action Bronson Show. What a crazy experience! American fashion designer, entrepreneur, and artist Marc Ecko was a guest. And I was delighted to meet Top Chef contestant Sheldon Simeon. Turns out that Chef Sheldon plays a mean ?ukulele too! Before taping, he and I jammed on some Ka?au Crater Boys songs! A very cool memory. Look for us on VICELAND.
