Incredible night....I loved the venue but the music is what I came to hear and I was not disappointed! Very entertaining and I'm still humming Hawaiian music this morning! Keep 'em coming!

Description

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.
