“A dynamic force within the style” [of slack key]”… “dazzling” – The New York Times

Hailing from the isle of O‘ahu, Makana is an internationally acclaimed slack-key guitarist, singer, composer, philosopher, activist, and one of Hawaii’s cultural ambassadors to the world. He is recognized as one of the top guitarists in the United States by Guitar Player magazine, and was honored by his peers in Hawai‘i with the Ki Ho‘alu (Slack Key) Foundation Legacy Award. His music is featured on the soundtrack for the George Clooney film The Descendants. His songs range from traditional to highly original, both instrumental and lyrical, exploring a broad spectrum of themes: cultural, philosophical, sociopolitical, economic, interpersonal, sensual, and universal, often through the lens of humor and a piercing wit.

His distinctly original songs are infused with the spirit of Hawai‘i. “… he has taken this centuries-old tradition and blasted it into the 21st century…” -- National Geographic more >>>
