Come escape the Bay Area blahs at the First Annual Berkeley Hawaiian Music Festival! Thrill to the heavenly sounds of slack key guitar, tap your toe to infectious 'ukulele, drift away on the harmonies of an all-star Hawaiian band with swaying hula dancers: all this and more gather for your listening pleasure on the Freight stage tonight. Join us for this evening of amazing Hawaiian music and mountains of aloha!

WaipunaThe festival's all-star lineup includes Hawaiian music legend Dennis Kamakahi, award-winning slack key guitarist Kawika Kahiapo, singer and multi-instrumentalist Weldon Kekauoha, Hawaiian contemporary duo Waipuna, slack key guitarist Patrick Landeza, plus awesome artists LT Smooth, Keale, Stephen Inglis, Mahealani Uchiyama, and Faith Ako.

But wait! The entertainment doesn't stop at the stage: the festival will feature mini workshops and talk stories, as well as a special Ke Kanaka Po'okela Award ("outstanding person") award presentation to local 'ukulele maestro Saichi Kawahara for his tireless efforts to promote all things Hawaiian throughout Northern California.

Berkeley slack key guru and Hawaiian music impresario Patrick Landeza is founder and organizer of the festival. In Patrick's own words: "This has been a dream of mine, to bring my friends to Berkeley, all under one roof, sharing the music of Hawai'i with the community."
