    Makana’s Earth Day Celebration Hawaiian All Star Jam

    Bringing the backyard Hawaiian style of kani ka pila to the stage at Blue Note, Makana has invited Kawika Kahiapo, Keale, Raiatea, Lopaka Colon, Tavana, Last Jerónimo of Veracruz, Chris Lau and Miss Aloha Hula Kaʻula Kamahele to create a lush waterfall of stringed and vocal beauty in this Earth Day jam session from heaven! Drawing inspiration from the slack key masters, especially Gabby “Pops” Pahinui and his Hawaiian Band, this is the kind of music that ONLY happens on the āina- rarely onstage- and not to be missed! Makana will open with a performance of unreleased songs celebrating the dynamics of humanityʻs releationship with Mother Earth, then to be joined by Last Jerónimo of Veracruz, Mexico- a master of traditional son jarocho music- a cousin of Hawaiian music- connecting the roots of our two cultures. Keale will share Kānaka insights surrounding our relationship with Mother Earth (Papahānaumoku).. and everyone will hui pū (come together) in a grand jam session celebrating our beautiful cultural heritage and this wahi pana (special place)- Hawaiʻi. One show, one time, on Earth Day- see you there!

    • Makana

      Makana is a singer, composer and master of the Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar tradition. Esquire Magazine refers to him as “the greatest living player,” and The New York Times calls him "dazzling." As a child he learned directly from the legends of the art form, including Bobby Moderow, Raymond Kaleoalohapoinaʻoleohelemanu Kāne and Sonny Chillingworth. Slack Key is a style dating back to the mid-1800s in which the guitar strings are “slacked” into beautiful chordal tunings. In these tunings- handed down through generations-the player performs alternating bass patterns, complex rhythms and lead melodies simultaneously to create a sound that evokes “three guitars in one,” evoking a lush acoustic soundscape that summons the dramatic imagery of Hawaiʻi.
