Editorial Reviews

Slack key guitar music, indigenous to Hawaii, has been around longer than the blues, and 25-year old Makana is considered the greatest living player. After two successful releases, this is his first purely Hawaiian slack key outing, and he sings and plays a combination of historical and cutting edge songs that surpass genre and evoke paradise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular Hawaiian Musical Experience! December 10, 2003
By Na Pali
Format:Audio CD
This album is truly awesome. Young Hawaiian Slack Key Master Makana transports you all over Hawaii with this great selection of historic Hawaiian songs smoothly mixed in with Makana originals. Makana is an awesome Hawaiian Musician, Singer & Songwriter and all three are impressively displayed on this new album.
Kick back, relax and let Makana sail you through Hawaii on a truly delightful Hawaiian Musical experience, you won't be dissapointed. I have listened to this album dozens of times and find myself wanting to listen again and again. When it's raining here in Seattle I pop this album in and let it take me back to Hawaii.....

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent young Hawaiian slack key guitarrist November 25, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I recently saw Makana play at the Kilahuea theater in Kauai and was blown away by his guitar playing and his energetic style. I had purchased this CD a day earlier and wanted to see with my own eyes that the guy could really play this traditional but crisp collection of Hawaiian songs live. I was not dissapointed. He is part of a new breed of Hawaiian young players that is injecting new energy into slack key playing. This is my second favorite Hawaiian CD of all time, next to Iz's Facing Future. An amazing performer, and a nice singer to boot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful! May 23, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Loved it! Makana is a whiz on the guitar while the timbre of his voice speaks volumes. You will like the album if you like Hawaiian music or if you just enjoy hearing a guitar virtuoso. If you ever have the opportunity to hear him live, he has great range and does a helluva job on contemporary and classic rock songs too. I'm hoping some of those covers too will be released on a future album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this album !!! November 5, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Ahhhhhh, finally. A full album of Makana's amazing slack key guitar in a much more traditional Hawaiian style. Sure, some selections have a more modern feel to them, but this is definitely my favorite Makana album. Just try and listen to The Hammock Song without being taken back to the beaches of sunny Hawai'i. Three words: buy this album !!!
