The Shedd Institute is proud to welcome George Kuo, Martin Pahinui and Aaron Mahi in their first visit to the Jaqua Concert Hall. George, Martin and Aaron’s traditional Hawaiian slack key style will take the listener on a true musical journey. In a language and feeling that anyone can understand and appreciate, the listener can expect to experience a deep sense of rich happiness combined with a good case of the chicken skin (goose bumps). Performances feature the breathtaking intimacy of solo slack key guitar followed by a rousing trio jam session, trading spontaneous instrument solos and unique vocal harmonies, recreating the atmosphere of a Hawaiian backyard party. This concert is about sharing the pure enjoyment of perpetuating traditional music and reciprocating and embellishing each other’s talents, to where these feelings become instilled in all audiences.
