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

MOMIX combines athleticism, riveting music, inventive costumes and spellbinding choreography to create a world of surrealistic images and wonder all brought to life by a cast of dancer-illusionists.
This brilliant exploration of nature’s forms uses large scale puppets and larger-than-life props designed by Michael Curry (The Lion King). The exotic visual landscape emerges from Artistic Director Moses Pendleton’s whimsical, fertile and mythological imagination.
