Last updated 9/5/2023 at 9:50am
The Belfry is hosting a “Concert for Maui” with songwriter, artist, and multi-instrumentalist Dayan Kai. The event is a fundraiser in support of the Maui community and residents impacted by recent wildfires. Special guests include Brad Tisdel, Beth Wood, and Dennis McGregor.
The concert will be held Saturday, September 16. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the show is at 7 p.m.
Dayan Kai is a true force of musical nature. An artist whose musical abilities and style know few bounds, Dayan is known for his soulful voice, powerful songwriting, and multi-instrumental prowess. Dayan’s deep insight into the human condition, innovative spirit, and infectious sense of humor enchant audiences around the world. Kai lives in Haiku, Maui, and has made his career as a singer/songwriter, musical director, solo artist, session recording artist, and has toured extensively with various musical ensembles including Keith Greeninger, a Sisters Folk Festival staple for many years.
“Dayan Kai is perhaps one of the most complete and talented musicians,” said Juan Sanchez, founder of Palenque Arts. “Not only is he a dazzling multi-instrumentalist who can adeptly switch between piano, flutes, acoustic guitar, or cajon, among many instruments, but also a soulful vocalist with stratospheric range and a poignant songwriter who knows how to heal with his compositions.”
Proceeds will go directly to community-based organizations on the ground in Maui, Hawaii. Tickets will be available at the door, and it is a $10-$30 sliding scale – proceeds benefit Maui Strong, N’ ‘Aik’ne o Maui, Maui Mutual Aid, Maui Hub, and Maui United Way.
