Hawaiian Roots & Sonic Frontiers: George Kahumoku Jr. & Makana

Hawaiian Roots & Sonic Frontiers: George Kahumoku Jr. & Makana

with Uncle Richard Ho'opi'i, Keoki Kahumoku, and hula dancers

Have you ever stood on a Santa Monica beach gazing out across the Pacific and dreamed of Hawaii? Now, Hawaii is coming to you on a warm wave of alohas with four-time Grammy Award-winner George Kahumoku Jr. As a master slack key guitarist, songwriter, sculptor, and storyteller, George has been called Hawaii’s Renaissance man, with music played from his heart and soul through the tips of his fingers. Appearing on the double bill with George is acclaimed young slack key guitarist Makana, whose powerful acoustic virtuosity was recently featured on The Descendants soundtrack. Makana has taken this centuries-old tradition and blasted it into the contemporary musical landscape. Join the masters as they take you from the down-home sounds of Hawaii to the ever-expanding frontiers of slack key guitar.
