“A dynamic force…dazzling”— The New York Times

Hailing from O‘ahu, Makana has received international acclaim as a talented slack-key guitarist, singer, composer, activist, and one of Hawaii’s cultural ambassadors. Recognized as one of the top guitarists in the U.S., his shows explore a broad spectrum of themes, often through the lens of humor and a piercing wit. Experience Makana’s delightful performance of both traditional and original songs featuring his exquisite vocals and gifted guitar playing.

“Makana provided a textbook illustration of slack-key style ...dazzling."

  • The New York Times

"He's lean, young, expressive, with impressive stage presence and jewel box precision… He is a master, for certain, but blessed with sizzling showmanship."

  • Honolulu Advertiser

"I've been deep into classical music and Hawaiian slack-key guitar. I've gotten way into Andres Segovia, and this Hawaiian guitar player called Makana"

  • Kirk Hammett interview, Guitar World (Lead guitarist for Metallica)

“…he has taken this centuries-old tradition and blasted it into the 21st century”

  • National Geographic

 “Slack key guitar music, indigenous to Hawai’i, has been around longer than the blues, and Makana is considered the greatest living player.”

  • Esquire Magazine
