Robert Cazimero was instrumental in the resurgence of Hawaiian music and culture in the 1970’s. That resurgence began a career that almost thirty years later is stronger than ever. Musician, composer, kumu hula…his work in all of these areas is well-known throughout the world. Robert is a Grammy-nominated, Hōkū award winning musician and composer with sibling Roland as the Brothers Cazimero. He is the kumu hula of Nā Kamalei, a hālau he founded over 30 years ago. Hālau Nā Kamalei won the overall trophy at the 2015 Merrie Monarch Festival. You can learn more about Robert and his teaching style from the film NA KAMALEI: The Men of Hula which tells the story of Hawaiian pride and examines male roles in Hawaiian culture, both past and present.
