Rhythmix Island Arts Festival: Music and Dance of Polynesia
Patrick Landeza is considered a leading exponent of ki ho'alu, the Hawaiian slack key guitar style, developed in the 19th century by Hawaiian cowboys who loosened their guitar strings, "slacking" them for a lower, more resonant sound.  As an award-winning musician, composer, and producer, born and raised in "the island Berkeley" to Hawaii-born parents, he became the youngest recipient of the prestigious Kapalakiko Aloha Spirit award, when he was 34.  Today, Patrick is regarded as one of the top slack key performers, and is the Bay Area's own slack key master.

Hālau Makana is the only Polynesian Dance Company located in Alameda and the ensemble performs dances from Hawai'i, Tahiti and New Zealand.  Kumu Lani founded the Halau as part of Island Hawaiian Studios to be a place to learn Polynesian music, art and dance.  Born and raised in Hilo, Hawaii, Kumu Lani has been teaching Hula, Ori Tahiti and Maori for over 20 years. The studio's primary mission is to preserve the Hawaiian, Tahitian, Samoan and Maori cultures through dance, art and music, and to share these art forms with the community.  

This concert made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Zellerbach Family Foundation.
