For over thirty years, Keola Beamer’s artistry has helped breathe new life into slack key guitar music while remaining true to the soul of its deeply Hawaiian roots.
In traditional Hawaiian society, sounded words possess mana (spiritual power) and music plays a significant role in all aspects of life. "I think that's why we're so serious about music," Keola says. 'We come from a history of oral tradition in which music played a big part. Our genealogies, land boundaries and navigational information are all in chants. In Hawai'i, music is more than personal expression, it keeps us connected to our history and culture."
