“…every performance is the essence of aloha.” – Popmatters.com
Master slack key guitarist George Kahumoku Jr., known as “Hawai‘i’s Renaissance Man,” is also a multiple Na Hoku Hanohano (Hawaiian Grammy) Award-winner. He is also a vocalist, storyteller, songwriter and author, world-traveling performer, as well as a high school and college teacher, artist and sculptor, farmer, and chef of traditional Hawaiian cuisine). His music features the delightful experience of ki-ho‘alu (slack key guitar)—the distinctly Hawaiian style of open tunings.
Kahumoku will be joined by Uncle Richard Ho‘opi‘i, a National Heritage Fellow renowned for traditional Hawaiian falsetto singing and ‘ukulele, and by his son Keoki Kahumoku. Both are also featured on the Grammy-winning CDs. One of the great traditions in Hawaiian Slack Key guitar—indeed in all Hawaiian culture—is the passing on of music and practices from one generation to the next. This concert offers you the rare opportunity to experience the warm bond of father and son, sharing a slack key genealogy even as each makes ki-ho‘alu (slack key) styling’s his own.
