Visit Kaumakaiwa Kanaka’ole’s website.


Praised by The New York Times as “dazzling” and considered the greatest living slack key guitar player by _Esquire _Magazine, Makana’s personal songs weave the roots of Hawaii’s vast musical palette into a universal sound. A three-time Na Hoku Hanohano Award-winner (Hawaii’s Academy of Recording Arts), Kaumakaiwa Kanaka’ole is the voice of Hawai’i’s new generation. With a passionate, unmatched love of his music and culture, Kaumakaiwa challenges not only himself but his contemporaries as well. Together, these two artists weave an extraordinary musical tapestry. With a musical language that expresses the diverse range of human emotion and experience, Makana and Kaumakaiwa Kanaka’ole are blazing a new trail in the 21st century while paying homage to those who have come before them.
