Makana Musicis considered the young authority on slack-key guitar music. Paula Fuga produces exquisite vocals, powerful lyrics, and gorgeous melodies that have earned her widespread praise.
---------------------------------------------------------------
Born and raised in Hawai’i, Makana Music is an internationally acclaimed slack key guitarist, singer, composer, philosopher, activist and one of Hawaii’s cultural ambassadors to the world. He is considered the youngest authority on his art form and recognized as one of the top guitarists in the US (Guitar Player Magazine 2008). The NY Times calls him “A dynamic force within the style” of slack key and National Geographic Society says Makana is “charting a new sonic frontier with deep ties to tradition”.

His songs range from traditional to highly original, both instrumental and lyrical, exploring a broad spectrum of themes: cultural, philosophical, social-political, economic, inter-personal, sensual, and universal, often through the lens of humor and a piercing wit. He has performed in venues worldwide ranging from Tianjin Opera House in China to The White House, toured nationwide with Jason Mraz, opened for Sting, Santana & Elvis Costello, and released 6 records to date.

Exquisite vocals, powerful lyrics and gorgeous melodies have earned Paula Fuga widespread critical praise and an incredibly dedicated fan base. Paula Fuga is a musician on a mission. Though many play music for the platitudes or acclaim, Paula plays music for a culture, spreading the thoughtful and evocative voice of the Hawaiian people across the world. Not content to be merely a widely respected artist, Paula has taken on the mantle of cultural ambassador—using her talent as an instrument to help bring about positive social change within her islands and beyond: performing at benefit concerts for charter schools, instilling the Hawaiian culture in the generations to come and, generally, being a beacon of the meditative and healing powers of her people.
