Na Palapalai free, Sunday

HANAPEPE — Gates to the Hanapepe Stadium open at 2 p.m. Sunday and the show starts at 3 p.m. when Na Palapalai offers a free concert.

The show will feature Hawaiian music and hula.

Na Palapalai was formed in 1995 by original group members Kuana Torres Kahele and Kapulanakehau Tamure in Hilo after being raised on traditional music.

This is the foundation for their distinctive Na Palapalai sound that has given rise to seven albums, several making it to the top five on the Billboard Top World Albums chart.

Na Palapalai has earned a number of Na Hoku Hanohano Awards, including Group of the Year.
