It’s our pleasure to announce that singer, songwriter, recording artist and Kahekili Trio entertainer Ata Damasco has agreed to host our Moku‘ula by Moonlight programs. The first one in the series will take place on Wednesday, July 1, 2015, beginning at 6:30 pm on the lawn in front of Hale Halawai in Kamehameha Iki Park, 525 Front Street, Lahaina. Ata will welcome kūpuna to share mana‘o and talk story. Then he’ll join friends in a kanikapila style musical jam.

Praised for his gospel and traditional Hawaiian music records, Ata is also well known for his laughter. One of his favorite pasttimes is talking story and making people laugh. He has recorded four solo albums:  Somewhere Up Ahead (2010), Pa‘ina Hou (2005), Pa‘ina (2002) and From The Valley To The Throne (2000). Ata won the 2011 Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award for Best Gospel Album for Somewhere Up Ahead. Join us in welcoming him to Lahaina!
