Seasoned performers and recording artists, Matagi, will entertain at our next free Hawaiian Music Series concert on Thursday, September 28 from 6 to 7:30 pm outdoors at the Baldwin Home Museum on the corner of Dickenson and Front Streets in Lahaina.
Meaning “wind” in Samoan, Matagi is the name for a trio of Maui musicians: Marvin Tevaga, Kalani Miles and Kimo Brehm. They have performed together for years at venues throughout the island, pleasing crowds with a variety of musical genres while sharing a common musical bond in vocal harmonies and rhythms. In 2016, Matagi released its debut album entitled, Valley Isle, which blends a signature of Hawaiian, Samoan, Tahitian and island contemporary sounds. The band members take you on a journey through Polynesia and back to a nostalgic era with contemporary beats put to Hawaiian music legend, Ernie Cruz Jr.’s “You Don’t Write” as well as timeless classics like Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling In Love With You.”
Watch Matagi’s new music video for “Kapua.”
Marvin Tevaga’s love for music began at the young age of eight when he picked up the ‘ukulele for the first time. He has been perfecting his talent and performing ever since. As a Samoan growing up in Hawai‘i with many diverse cultures, he appreciates various genres of music and redefines songs in his own style. Marvin regularly entertains as a wedding musician.
Also Samoan, Kalani Miles is an accomplished guitarist who enjoys performing for couples during their wedding ceremonies. Maui native Kimo Brehm, a bass guitarist, performs at weddings and special functions with island musicians.
Limited seating is provided; mats and low beach chairs are welcome.
