Makana Different Game An Experience For All

Blend together folk, jazz, modern contemporary rock, pop and alternative and have it fine tuned by our generation’s greatest Hawaiian slack key guitarist and you’ve got a “Different Game”, Makana’s 4th album just released April 22nd.

In a style that is unlike any other, Makana takes you away on a journey that crosses all boundaries and soothes you with an uplifting contemporary feel that is quite different from his previous albums, which identified more with the Hawaiian style of music. This is a true diamond in disguise and a precedent setting album that all should take notice of. Escape to another world in “Away”, experience a message that all the world can enjoy in “New Love Song”, and enjoy the simple melody of “Time of Being.”

“Different Game” is love, it’s peace, it’s serenity and everything this world needs to experience from music in this day and age. This truly is an album that every music lover should add to their collection. It’s such a wonderful gift from a Hawaiian musician whose name is actually a Hawaiian term meaning “gift from heaven.”

Currently Makana is touring the West Coast of the United States and set to return back to Hawaii to finish up the tour in late May. Check out the listings below for a location nearest you and experience Makana LIVE. It’s an experience you won’t forget!
