Kaumakaiwa Kanaka'ole Wills Glasspiegel for NPR
In his early teens, Kaumakaiwa Kanaka’ole started enchanting audiences with his performances of traditional Hawaiian song and dance. As a young seventh-generation native Hawaiian, he has the power to slip easily from the traditional into the contemporary. He performed at globalFEST 2011 with guitarist Shawn Pimental.
