Date: 28 June 2009
Location: Kahului, Maui, Hawaii
2008 Annual Ki Ho'Alu Slack Key Festival
Lineage: Audio Reality binaural mics > Sony RH1 (HiSP 256kbps) >
Sonic Stage to PC/WAV > Cool Edit Pro (tracking) > flac
The festival this year was quite a bit different from last year.
There were many different styles of music played, traditional, pop, rock,
latin, jazz - but all with a slack key guitar element. This was also the first
time I ever saw and heard a nose flute played (backing up Makana at the
end of the show).
Some highlights of the show for me were sets by Kevin & Ikaika Brown,
Jeff Peterson and Davis & David Kamakahi. However, everybody played
very well and were enjoyable.
The between set chatter has been edited but enough remains to help give
a feel of the afternoon.
Enjoy. Aloha from Maui.
