Makana at Blue Note

Described as “dazzling” by the New York Times, Makana is an internationally acclaimed guitarist, singer, composer and activist who is widely known for lending his musical talent for social change. He has been a TEDx talk presenter, and his guitar playing has been featured on three Grammy-nominated albums, including the soundtrack of the Academy-Award winning film “The Descendants”. In 2011, at the apex of the “Occupy Wall Street” movement, Makana’s song “We Are The Many” went viral on YouTube garnering more than half a million collective views and was coined the “Occupy Anthem” by Rolling Stone Magazine. He has released 8 records to date. Born and raised in Hawai’i, Makana grew up on the shores of Waikiki. Makana- whose name means “a gift given freely”- began singing when he was 7 years-old, took up ‘ukulele at 9 and began learning the ancient art of slack key at 11.By 14 he was performing professionally. A protégé of the Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar legends, Makana has dedicated his life to perpetuating as well as evolving the traditional Hawaiian art form. Slack key or Ki Ho’alu, nearly 200 years old and indigenous to Hawai’i, was created by ‘ohana (families) on the different islands as a very personal folk music expression of their beautiful surroundings and way of life.
