Join us every Saturday in June for our Emerging Artist Pop-Up series at Victoria Ward Park! The lineup features Hawai‘i’s up-and-coming musicians, including talent from Haku Collective’s Artists to Watch program. This special outdoor activity is a great way to spend your Saturday afternoon, listening to the smooth sounds of local musicians, soaking up the sunshine and reveling in the trade winds.

About the Emerging Artists

Our pop up series continues with Haku Keiki ft. Dillon Pakele and Tiara Gomes on June 26.

Dillon Pakele is a Native Hawaiian/Samoan from Kapolei. He is currently enrolled in HCC’s Music Entertainment Learning Experience (MELE) program working towards a degree in Music Business. His love and passion expanded this past year while starting a new band “Pakele Mele” with his sister Kamalei and dad Kaulana Pakele. Dillon’s debut single “Forgive Me” ft. FIJI is available on all digital platforms!

Tiara Gomes is climbing the ladder towards musical success with her debut single, Hurricane, featuring popular local island reggae group Maoli. Born and raised in Hawaiʻi, the Waimānalo talent incorporates a wide range of musical influences in her work. She recently placed 1st in Mana Maoli’s Mele & Mo’olelo contest, in the Acapella category, for her cover of Allen Stone’s “Bed I Made.”

Dillon and Tiara are part of Haku Collective’s Haku Keiki and are featured on the Children of the Sea (Nā Kama Kai) album. The album is available now on all digital platforms!
