Upcoming "Aloha by the Bay™" Music Series - Kuini
On June 14, the Nihonmachi Street Fair will welcome the triple-powered trio, Kuini to the UCSF Cole Hall.

Kuini (from left to right): Kapulanakehau Tamure, Iwalani "Ho'o" Apo and Keli Mahealani Viernes
  Kuini, comprised of Iwalani "Ho'o" Apo (ukulele), Keli Mahealani Viernes (upright bass) and Kapulanakehau Tamure (guitar), was formed by accident. When asked their name at a party they played at, the word “kuini” (queen) came up, since all the band members are transgendered. And that name has stuck ever since.

Through Hawaiian music, the trio keeps their kupuna’s memories of old names, historic events and romantic drama alive.

In the 2012, Kuini took top honors at theKa Himeni ‘Ana Hawaiian singing competition at the Hawaii Theatre. They sang in three part falsetto harmonies for the most part but big reaction from crowd when they suddenly switched to deep lower-register voices.
