HAPA

The most recognized name in Hawaiian music, HAPA returns to the Kanbar Center for Performing Arts, Summer Nights festival stage. Their hypnotic, liquid guitar runs, woven around clear, tenor Hawaiian vocals and immaculate harmonies driven by poetic lyrics, exult the rapture of the Hawaiian landscape, history and mythology. “…Hapa explore(s) the rich possibilities of Hawaiian music and then some, blending a variety of pop and world music styles.” ----SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE

This overriding quality of HAPA’s music is one of passion, beauty and serenity found in the majestic tones of the oli (chant), mele (song), and the innovative sounds of virtuoso guitar performances. If Maui were music, it would sound like HAPA. Rolling Stone Japan recently described them as “Titans of the Genre”.

Enjoy an evening with Hawaii’s hottest group! 

Barry Flanagan:  vocals, lead guitar
Kapono Na'ili'ili:  vocals, cello, guitar, ukulele
Tarvin Makia:  vocals, bass
