I went to a Slack Key Guitar (kī hōʻalu) symposium that was sponsored by the State Arts Commission, but couldn’t get permission to film. No problem!
We had our own concert afterwords with Matt Love, who magically sat behind me in the Paliku Theatre, and of course, he had his guitar in the car! Please take a listen to his falsetto-style singing along with his guitar playing a song written by Dennis Kamakahi. His daughter Fran does a fantastic intro to today’s episode too!
Matt has an album for sale. Please email him at Mr.Aloha@network.net or contact his daughter Fran at email@example.com.
kī hōʻalu: slack key
Kanekapila: making music (technically not a true Hawaiian word, but it’s what we say when talking about sitting around together and making music.)
