(REDONDO BEACH, CA) On January 23, 2011, Kala Koa Entertainment will present the highly anticipated
4th Annual Southern California Slack Key Festival at the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center, a
showcase of the best Hawaiian slack key guitarists in the world, all on one stage.

The 2011 lineup features Cyril Pahinui (son of Gabby Pahinui) performing
with GRAMMY winner Jeff Peterson, Guitar magazine Guitar Superstar finalist Makana, three-time GRAMMY winner George Kahumoku, Jr with
internationally renowned steel guitar player Bob Brozman, slack key guitarist
and falsetto singer Gary Haleamau and - for the first time - the legendary
slack key master Keola Beamer (Honolulu City Lights)together with one of
Hawaii's top female vocalists Raiatea Helm.

The Festival - the first one of its kind anywhere outside Hawaii - set a major
milestone for Hawaiian music events on the mainland when it debuted in 2008 and has already garnered a
huge loyal following - creating, cultivating, and renewing interest in Hawaii and its music.

What is Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar Music?

Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar (ki ho'alu) is truly one of the world’s great
acoustic guitar traditions, considered to be one of the oldest music
traditions to still be a viable (other than just historical) part of a modern
culture. Ki ho'alu, which literally means to "loosen the key," is the Hawaiian
language name for the solo finger-picked style unique to Hawaiʻi. In this
tradition, the strings (or "keys") are "slacked" to produce many different
tunings, which usually contain a major chord, or a chord with a major 7th
note, or sometimes one with a 6th note in it. Each tuning produces a
lingering sound behind the melody and has a characteristic resonance and fingering.

So Who's goin to this?

anybody up for a trip to Tony's on the Redondo pier after?
or Purple Orchid in El Segundo.

I don't get out that way(South Bay) too often,
so I figured it's a good excuse to visit one of the 2 places.

This will be the first year in many that I won't be able to go to the concert, although I may be able to do an hour at the marketplace. I'm not kidding when I say this is one of THE BEST concerts of the year. You will have a great time. Slack key is beautiful music, my friends. Go, listen and be mentally transported to the Land of Aloha.

This event was almost sold out.
close to 1500 people in a theater watching Hawaiian music,
all wearing Aloha shirts and mu-mus.

I guess its just too traditional and not poly pop enough for the tiki crowd.

Sad.

some amazing playing and singing at these shows.
