12th Annual Southern California Slack Key Festival at the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center - Redondo Beach, CA

12th annual celebration of today's best & brightest Hawaiian music talent

Played from the heart and soul through the fingers, and flowing with vivid tropical images, Hawaiian ki ho'alu (slack key) is truly one of the great acoustic guitar traditions in the world. In slack key, some of the strings are slacked from the standard tuning, with the thumb playing the bass while the other fingers play the melody and improvise in a finger-picked style.

Since 2008, the Southern California Slack Key Festival has been the biggest Hawaiian music concert event on the mainland U.S., showcasing Grammy-winning slack key guitarists, the best hula dancers in the world, special guest performers and an Island Marketplace.

Brittni Paiva Live at the Coffee Gallery Backstage - Altadena, CA

Brittni Paiva Live at the Coffee Gallery Backstage - Altadena, CA

01/22/19 - Brittni Paiva: Legendary Hawaiian Master of Ukulele

We only get her once every 5 years. During her last performance at Coffee Gallery she sold out the show and many people were turned away. Reserve in advance so you are not one of them!

Brittni Paiva (pie –VAH) already a multi award-winning instrumentalist is known for her stunning articulation of what she can do on the ukulele going from slow and moving, to rapid-fire, classical-ballet, to ancient Japan, translating forms of jazz, world beat, pop, Flamenco and Latin, and filter these styles through her 4-string ukulele.

Brittni and her ukulele are a brilliant match: Both are humble in nature, small in size, and very powerful with proper delivery. Brittni and the ukulele in general have gained notoriety, no longer confined by stereotypes about the instrument. There’s a global resurgence in the instrument’s popularity and she is part of the trend.

Brittni's Website

She has performed on stage with Carlos Santana when he appeared in Hawaii; also joined famed guitarist Tommy Emmanuel on stage at the California Worldfest; and become a 3-time Na Hoku Hanohano Award winner with numerous other nominations throughout the years, including Most Promising Artist of the Year in 2005 for her debut release, Brittni x 3.

Releasing her 5th CD with the legendary Grammy winner Tom Scott — who personally requested to play with her at a concert — thinks Paiva is the real deal, because of her ability to play all kinds of music without losing her identity. “She plays it like a guitar, giving her a wide range of possibilities. She adopts tunes to this instrument, and makes them sound full and rich. She’s doing a great job and has a great future…She’s got a really unique voice in music,” he raved.

Brittni received two nominations for this 5th CD and won both categories: Ukulele Album of the Year and Best Instrumental Composition of the Year from the Hawaii Academy of Recording Arts (Na Hoku Hanohano Awards).

Brittni brings a whole new spirit to the music and to the instrument: pop sensibilities in a smooth jazz format,” says John Schroeter, music producer and author of Between the Strings: The Secret Lives of Guitars. “It’s got a new kind of energy—it’s infectious.

Brittni is well-known in world music circles with millions of hits on YouTube. She began her music career at age four trained in classical piano through the Suzuki method. Seven years later, her grandfather gave her an `ukulele, a traditional 4-string Hawaiian folk instrument. It was “love at first touch”.

In the early ’90s, Hawaiian Style Band, led by Bryan Kessler and Wade Cambern, redefined contemporary Hawaiian music. They offered a fresh musical perspective on local culture with original compositions about living Hawaiian style—about island romance, talking story, ‘ohana, and sovereignty. Their interpretation of Hawaiian language songs re-acquainted music fans with these important compositions. The multiple Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award-winning band was conceptualized as a revolving band, a collaboration of more than fifty musicians over the course of its three albums: Vanishing Treasures, Rhythm of the Ocean, and  Ohana. Participants included Hawaiian music notables Israel Kamakawiwaʻole; Bla, Cyril, and Martin Pahinui; Fiji; Teresa Bright; the Ka‘au Crater Boys; Del Beazley, and Robi Kahakalau.

For the 26th anniversary celebration of Vanishing Treasures, Robi joins Bryan and Wade in delivering the distinctive vocal harmony of Hawaiian Style Band. Robi has since released five solo albums, earning her multiple Hōkū awards, including Female Vocalist of the Year. Her collaborative project with Sean Na‘auao was among the finalists for a Grammy Award. Bryan Kessler and Wade Cambern wrote and produced Hawaiian Style Band's first three albums. Bryan has gone on to produce and perform on twelve albums in Japan and Hawaii. He contributed a selection to the 2005 compilation album Slack Key Volume 2 which went on to win Hawaii's first Grammy Award. Wade Cambern has enjoyed a rich career as composer and lyricist of beloved songs such as “Let’s Talk Story,” “Rhythm of the Ocean,” “Live A Little,” and “Love and Honesty.” Wade Cambern has collaborated with many of Hawaii’s iconic musical figures, including Israel Kamakawiwo‘ole with whom he and Bryan co-wrote “Living In A Sovereign Land.”

Performing hits from their first two CDs as well as songs from each of their solo CDs, Bryan, Wade, and Robi will be joined by bassist, Alex Morrison as Hawaiian Style Band Quartet 2018.
