Makana, Guitar Hero of Hawaii: Jan. 29 & 30, 2011

If his name speaks to his talents, Makana is truly a gift.   Litteraly translated as “gift” in Hawaiian, Makana shares his diverse style of music with audiences far and near. From slack key to folk, rock, jazz and Hawaiian, Makana has created a style all his own, “transcending typecasting,” according to the MACC.  With 20 years of concert experience under his belt, and a half dozen releases to his credit, Makana is the gift that continues to give.  His innovative stylings come to the McCoy Studio Theater stage for two nights–Jan. 29 & 30, 2011.

Solo Sessions: Speaking from Experience

After successful Solo Sessions with Maui’s own Keali`i Reichel and Barry Flanagan, the Maui Arts & Cultural Center found an attractive niche that both artist and audience can appreciate.

“I’m a firm believer that all artists, no matter their culture, have a story to tell … It really depends on the artist, how much they are willing to expose,” said Maui Musician and Kumu Hula, Keali`i Reichel..

“For myself, this was the equivalent of my first ‘no safety net’ show – naked. It also gave me the opportunity to talk about the whole music journey,” said Barry Flanagan.

Solo Session Ticket Info:

Tickets to Solo Sessions are $25 for standard, or $45 for VIP seating, which includes a meet-and-greet session with the artist.  Tickets are available at the MACC Box Office, by calling (808) 242-SHOW (7469) or ordering online at MauiArts.org.
