Led Kaapana  & Mike Kaawa  are masters of the Hawaiian style of music known as slack key guitar (Ki Ho'alu). Led is the NEA National Heritage Fellow and one of the best slack key players alive today. He has a style that comes from his family in the days before TV, radio, internet -- it's down-home and real. His finger-pickin' style extends to autoharp and 'ukulele as well, and his vocal range encompasses baritone to Hawaiian falsetto singing (leo ki'e ki'e). Mike is Hawai'i's finest 12-string guitar player and one of its most highly regarded musicians.


 

A master of the slack key guitar, Led Kaapana  has been one of Hawai'i's most influential musicians for four decades. His mastery of stringed instruments, exceptional picking style on slack key guitar and 'ukulele, and extraordinary baritone to leo ki`eki`e (falsetto) vocal range, have made him a musical legend. With easy-going style and kolohe (rascal) charm, he has built a loyal corps of "Led Heads" from Brussels to his birthplace on the Big Island of Hawai'i. In 2011, he was honored with an NEA National Heritage Fellowship  for his artistic excellence and his contributions to our nation's traditional arts heritage.


 

Mike Kaawa  is Hawai'i's finest 12-string guitar player and one of its most highly regarded musicians. Known as "The Hawaiian Boy", he describes his music as "Hawaiian with attitude". He started performing at a young age and briefly flirted with rock-and-roll before committing himself to Hawaiian music. He is a regular at Hawaii's Slack Key Festivals and popular venues. A captivating performer, Mike has created his own unique, robust sound in his playing, with a distinct vocal expression that comes straight from the heart. Often teaming up with Led Kaapana, they released Force of Nature  late 2008 which earned a Grammy Award nomination for Best Hawaiian Music Album.


 

Hawaiian musical legend Ledward Kaapana  is unrivaled in his exceptional picking style on slack key guitar and 'ukulele, and baritone to falsetto vocal range, a delightful performer with rascal charm. Joined by Mike Kaawa , Hawaii's finest 12-string guitar player.

Known as "The Hawaiian Boy", he describes his music as "Hawaiian with attitude". Mike Kaawa is the perfect match for Led. Since they began performing together in the early 2000s, they have crafted a remarkable musical rapport much like jazz musicians' improvisations with each other.
