09 Nov 13:00 - 11 Nov 16:00 - Pago Pago
The concert series is a tribute to honor the life and contribution of internationally acclaimed jazz vocalist and recording artist, Samoan born, Mavis Rivers. While Mavis gained fame and recognition as
a jazz singer in New Zealand and later in the United States where she lived, she is not as widely known amongst the younger Samoan generation and the wider Samoan community.
Samoana Jazz & Arts Festival will pay special tribute to
this world-renowned and gifted musician. And most importantly – “bring her music home” to her beloved Samoa Islands, through a tribute concert series supported by the Hawai’i Pops Jazz Orchestra,
led and conducted by her Grammy Award-winning son and acclaimed jazz musician in his own right – La’auli Matt Cattingub.
So mark your calendars and we hope to see you this November 9-11, 2018. Soifua ma ia manuia!
