Makana in Concert

A Benefit for Hui o Nā Wai ʻEhā and Honoring Protectors of Maui’s Streams and featuring a live performance by  Kaʻena Eleban

 Join internationally acclaimed guitarist, singer, and composer Makana for this special concert to benefit Hui o Nā Wai ʻEhā’s ongoing work to ensure Maui’s streams and water resources are maintained as a public trust resource. Hui o Nā Wai ʻEhā is a community-based non-profit on Maui that is seeking to restore and protect mauka to makai flow to the four great rivers of Nā Wai ʻEhā (Waikapū, Wailuku, Waiehu, Waiheʻe). Proceeds from this event assist Hui o Nā Wai ʻEhā in covering their ongoing legal costs and raising awareness. Described as “dazzling” by the New York Times, Makana is widely known for lending his musical talent for social change. His guitar playing has been featured on three Grammy-nominated albums, including the soundtrack of the Academy-Award winning film “The Descendants.”
