Two award-winning and acclaimed Hawaiian musicians, Nathan Aweau and Jeff Peterson, join forces to create Mamo, a thrilling duo that takes traditional hula standards (along with some of the pair's original works) and gives them a little jazz twist. The result is a fresh look at some of Hawaii's most popular hula songs. Peterson is a renowned slack key guitarist who's proficient in a variety of styles from jazz and classical to slack key and beyond. Bassist and vocalist Aweau has been hailed by The New York Times for his "advanced understanding of harmony and orchestration" and "effortless" singing. Both are Na Hoku Hanohano Award winners who have dazzled Barclay audiences with their brilliant musicianship in recent years. Learn More

I loved it! I didn't know what exactly to expect & it is hard to explain, but the illusions were wonderful, creative & thought provoking. I highly recommend it! Once you see it, I'm sure you will agree that it is indescribably delicious! What a delightful surprise!
Quotes & Highlights
- "Fluid, sensual, stylish – sublime." --The Times (London)
Step into a surreal theatrical world, where disbelief is suspended and nothing is what it seems. A smash hit in London and at the Spoleto Festival, Aurelia’s Oratorio is a magical whirl of visual illusions and trickery. Inspired by the magic of the music hall, variety and circus, this show stars Aurélia Thierrée, Charlie Chaplin’s granddaughter, and is created and directed by her mother Victoria Chaplin Thierrée (creator of Cirque Invisible). Actress, illusionist, and dancer, Aurélia takes us into an unforgettable realm of fun and fantasy, in a whimsical and yet sophisticated evening of theatre.
