The Shops at Wailea welcomes 14-time Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award winner, Mark Yamanaka, to Maui as part of the “Ke Kani Hone O Wailea” free concert series.
Mark is proud to call Hilo, Hawaiʻi his home. A father of three, Mark released his debut album, Lei Pua Kenikeni, in 2010. It went on to win four of the most coveted awards at the 2011 Hōkūs and in 2013, he followed that success with the release of Lei Maile. Just as successful as its predecessor, Lei Maile also received four awards at the 2014 Hōkūs. In 2015, he collaborated with his close friends, Kūpaoa, to release a holiday album, A Gift of the Heart. That album was named Christmas Album of the Year at the 2016 Hōkūs.
After a five-year hiatus from his solo Hawaiian releases, Mark was thrilled to share his latest collection of songs on his 2018 release, Lei Lehua. He has never released a selection as personal as that one, with eight of the 14 tracks written or co-written by himself. Lei Lehua is a celebration of Mark’s love for his hometown, his love for his family, and his growth as a musician, vocalist and composer.
In 2019, Mark was honored to win five Nā Hōkū Hanohano awards for his project including: Album of the Year, Song of the Year (“Lei Lehua”), Male Vocalist of the Year, Island Music Album of the Year, and Single of the Year (“Morning Drive”). Like his previous albums, Lei Lehua is an unforgettable garland of songs, sure to adorn your heart and mind.
