The HI Now Live music series is back on Thursday, March 19, 2020, at Mangiamo by 604. The beautiful new venue overlooks the Navy Marine Golf Course, and everyone is welcome. This month, enjoy a free concert by Grammy-nominated artist Josh Tatofi!
Josh Tatofi was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii. With idols like Luther Vandross and Peabo Bryson, and ballad-ready chops to boot, he yearned to fuse his R&B soul with a love for his Polynesian heritage. As he developed artistically, the heritage of his past became the gateway to discovering his future.
With the release of his first Hawaiian language single, Pua Kiele, Tatofi expressed his adoration for the language, culture and traditions of Hawaii. In 2014, he had a career altering epiphany and discovered a home for his voice in traditional Hawaiian music. In 2016, he released a full-length Hawaiian album, and with it embedded his imprint in the Hawaiian music scene.
Since then, Tatofi has earned the nickname Hawaii’s Luther Vandross. In 2017, he won two Na Hoku Hanohano Awards for the categories of Male Vocalist of the Year and Island Music Album of the Year for “Pua Kiele.” He garnered a Grammy nomination in 2018 for the same album in the category of Regional Roots.
Tatofi released his sophomore full-length Hawaiian album, entitled “Ua Kui A Lawa,” in December of 2019. He has eight original tracks along with two cover songs
So here’s your chance to catch Josh Tatofi performing live on Thursday, March 19 at Mangiamo by 604. The event is free and starts at 6 p.m. Be on the lookout for more concerts with talented local musicians during the HI Now Live Music Series including a performance by Namahana and Ana Vee on April 16.
