The fourth concert in Carson Valley Art Council’s 2014-15 concert series will feature music from Mamo.

The concert takes place 7 p.m. Feb. 20 in the CVIC Hall in Minden. Doors open 6 p.m.

Mamo is the name of the duo of accomplished Hawaiian musicians Nathan Aweau and Jeff Peterson.

Their repertoire spans a wide range reaching as far back as the Hawaiian Monarchy, to new compositions and arrangements that are at the cutting edge of contemporary Hawaiian music.

The duo features the vocals of Aweau and the slack key guitar stylings of Peterson with acoustic and electric bass, ukulele, and percussion.

“A perfect and unexpected fusion of recomposing traditional Hawaiian melodies and harmonies into the realm of American Jazz, blues and contemporary music,” organizers said.

Aweau and Peterson reflect on their Hawaiian heritage in their first collaborative recording.

Their album features four original compositions by Peterson, and arrangements of classic Hawaiian standards shaped by the collective influences of the broad musical backgrounds of both artists.

Tickets for Mamo, presented by the Carson Valley Arts Council, are $20 in advance, $25 at the door and $5 for students with ID.
