The MACC presents award-winning slack-key guitar player, singer, and composer, Makana, in a special Valentine’s Day concert in the MACC’s intimate McCoy Studio Theater.
A protégé of the Hawaiian slack key guitar legends, including Bobby Moderow Jr. and the late master Uncle Sonny Chillingworth, Makana has dedicated his life to perpetuating as well as evolving the traditional Hawaiian art form.
From this slack key tradition Makana has evolved his own dynamic, high-octane style, coined “Slack Rock”: slack key infused with elements of bluegrass, rock, blues and raga.
Described as “dazzling” by The New York Times, Makana has become an internationally acclaimed guitarist, singer, composer and activist who is widely known for lending his musical talent for social change.
