About Masters of Hawaiian Music: George Kahumoku Jr, Kawika Kahiapo, Nathan Aweau
From the renowned “Slack Key Show” on Maui that produced four Grammy Award-winning CDs, three masters share the delightful experience of slack key guitar – the distinctly Hawaiian style of open tunings – ‘ukulele, Hawaiian songs, and a kolohe (rascal) sense of humor.

The 2007 Na Hoku Hanohano Slack Key Artist of the year, Kawika Kahiapo has contributed his musical talent to nearly 100 recording projects. A lifelong musician, he has collaborated or performed with artists such as Jack Johnson, Kaukahi, Daniel Ho, Paula Fuga, and many others.
Nathan Aweau is an ace guitarist, natural vocalist, in-demand commercial performer, and tireless educator. After college, Nathan received his musical education with a 16-year stint in the legendary Don Ho’s band, followed by another 8 years as a member of Hapa.
