Hot Club of Hulaville
Monday, May 25, 2020
With Hot Club of Hulaville, you never get just a concert. This Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award-winning band never fails to please with Swing Jazz inspired by Django Reinhardt and the Hot Club of Paris. This time... the art ensemble goes to a different part of the Continent - Portugal - as it explores the exquisitely dramatic Portuguese blues called Fado! This music is intense...it is gorgeous...and it will make you feel.
The instrumental quartet is fantastic, featuring Duane Padilla on violin, Sonny Silva on guitar, along with special guest Randy Wong - the leader of the Honolulu Youth Symphony. Finally, our special featured guest is Mr. Jeff Linsky on guitar and ukulele. Of course, Fado is all about the great vocals. Ms. Ramana Vieira - a great fadista from the Bay Area - will be the featured vocalist. She is a fantastic and engaging singer and has international acclaim for Fado. A special appearance by Hawaii's own Ryan Souza will round out the evening.
