Kahilu Theatre Kani Ka Pila

Part of this week’s Slack Key and ‘Ukulele Institue at the Kahilu Theatre in Waimea was a kani ka pila (jam) with the instructors (and friends). It was open to all players who wanted to get up on stage and participate, so I went to check it out. The lineup was phenomenal and I had a great time just playing in the back and watching some of Hawai’i’s best musicians. Here are some pictures:

The Ho’opi’is sang wonderful falsetto throughout the show
