As a guitar & ukulele player, there is nothing that I like more than an impromptu jam session between family and friends. In Hawaii, these types of acoustic jams are known as Kanikapila. I first heard this term on a trip to Hawaii back in in 1996, when I happened upon a fantastic album called Acoustic Soul by John Cruz. From that moment on, I was hooked on John Cruz, Hawaiian music and the concept of Kanikapila.
So with this new design, I want to pay homage to Kanikapila, with hopes that we can extend the use of this glorious positive word to acoustic jams that occur far from the shores of Hawaii. I encourage you to host your own Kanikapilas no matter where you call home.
Aloha Nui Loa!
