Wiwoʻole in native Hawaiian means ‘fearless, brave, bold, and courageous.’
In this historic occurrence of unprecedented and catastrophic loss after the fires in Lahaina, the unifying and healing power of mele (music) has summoned Maui’s celebrated recording artists and hālau to gather for the Wiwoʻole Maui Benefit Concert (Livestream) from the Grand Wailea, A Waldorf Astoria Resort in Maui.
Wiwoʻole #MauiStrong is dedicated to raising essential disaster relief funds urgently needed to support and sustain the victims of the August 8 Maui wildfires that affected communities across the island and devastated the historic town of Lahaina (traditionally known as Malu’ulu’olele).
Lahaina, originally a small fishing village, holds significance to Hawai’i as it was chosen by King Kamehameha II, to be the revered royal capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom from 1820-1845. Today, the Lahaina wildfire is now the deadliest in U.S. history in more than a century.
Wiwoʻole Maui Benefit Concert (Livestream), presented by Grand Wailea, The Office of Hawaiian Affairs, KITV4 News, Pacific Media Group, and emceed by, Malika Dudley. will be live-streamed worldwide on August 19, 2023, from 12:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. Hawai’i Standard Time on this platform and www.kaainamomona.org
