Live Music Night – Kai Ea with Kumu Mālia

Kai Ea is the musical duo of Mālia Helelā and Umi Perkins. Their style is an eclectic mix of traditional Hawaiian, classic, contemporary and original music. Kai Ea has many meanings, including rising tide and sovereign sea.

Through Kai Ea, they compose and breathe life into music that expresses the depth and breadth of the human experience.
