Makana

December 6, 2022

Makana is a singer, composer, cultural educator, and master of Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar. His music combines deep tradition with unbridled innovation to breathe fresh intensity into the timeless sounds of Hawai’i. The New York Times calls him "dazzling." His music has been featured on three GRAMMY-nominated albums, including the soundtrack of the Academy-Award winning film The Descendants. Guitar Player Magazine ranked him as one of the top 3 guitarists in America, and the Hawai’i Academy of Recording Arts recognized him with the Slack Key Legacy Award. Slack Key is a unique style from the 1800s that simulates three guitars in one, performed in gorgeous tunings that open the guitar to a symphonic sound.

Makana’s live performances are raw, diverse and virtuosic, culturally informative, shared in multiple languages, and always spontaneous. Feel the presence of kūpuna (elders) as he honors their legacies while weaving in universal themes and sounds from around the world. An acoustic experience like no other.
