The MACC Presents
MAKANA & Friends
With Special Guests
Yoza, Lopaka Colon & Lono Kaumeheiwa
In a tribute to slack key legend
Saturday, JANUARY 27
7:30 pm | McCoy Studio Theater
Sonny Chillingworth was one of Hawaiian music’s most influential figures. He served as musical director for Hawaiian icon, Don Ho, and left behind a legacy of music and students in the unique and rare folk art of Hawaiian slack key guitar. But Sonny was more than a slack key genius: his records and performances expanded to include blues, country, rockabilly, ballads, and most notably, Latin music. This tribute concert will take you back in time to the slopes of Mauna Kea, the birth of the “paniolo,” and the origins of Sonny’s slack key style, which served as the foundation for Makana’s own dazzling style. Enjoy special musical performances by Makana, Yoza, Lopaka Colon, and Lono Kaumeheiwa! Through a riveting blend of Hawaiian and Latin influences, this tribute concert will unearth the finest gems from Sonny’s oeuvre, sharing songs rarely heard today with a healthy dose of Makana’s own music showcased throughout. If you love the music of old Hawai’i, this is a concert not to be missed!
