Event Description:

The 7th Annual Gabby Pahinui Waimanalo Kanikapila, is a “gathering of Hawaiian Musicians” to recognize Gabby Pahinui & Waimanalo as a center for Hawaiian music & cultural preservation, while developing & strengthening community pride & partnerships among ohana, community organizations, businesses & government agencies

Most importantly, the event makes a vital investment in the practices of cultural foundation building. The project is initiated from within the Hawaiian cultural community by Native Hawaiians who have dedicated their lives to supporting cultural practices, through preservation and educational programs. The event brings cultural practitioners together to connect to the special bond they share and to network/interact while sharing their knowledge and talents. Many of the most recognized and iconic musicians of today, including Gabby’s own now legendary sons began their training at musical gatherings such as this. There is a strong desire to bring back that musical character, connection, interaction, and happening to Waimanalo and to acknowledge the musical heritage of the Waimanalo community.

On August 8, 2014, the event begins with music workshops held at the pavilion. These workshops are being expanded due to growing interest in learning from Hawaiian master musicians. The main event on August 9th is designed as a gathering for musicians providing the opportunity to connect, play music and spend the day together. In the true kanikapila tradition they contribute to the day’s performances often playing with musicians other than their regular group/bands. It is expected that over 200 musicians and dancers will perform, beginning at 9:00am and continuing to 6:00pm.

Although the audience is secondary, because the event is free and open to the public more than 2,000 people join the gathering to watch and listen and experience this unprecedented cultural celebration. The event also provides an opportunity for community groups and organizations to set up informational displays and sell various arts and crafts for their fundraising. Food booths provided by community organizations and Waimanalo athletic groups feature era related local Hawaiian luau plate lunch, fried fish, poki, huli chicken, B-B-Q plates, patelles, shave ice, and the customary chili bowl and beef stew and rice.
