      Keoki Kahumoku

      This fifth generation award winning slack-key guitarist & recording artist began performing with his father, George Kahumoku, Jr. in 1990 at the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel on the Big Island of Hawai‘i. Later, Keoki moved to of Maui where he performed around the island including the Westin & Kapalua Bay Hotels. Possessing a special talent for teaching, Keoki began classes at home and at various educational institutions including the Queen Liliuokalani Children Center, Maui Community College, King Kekaulike High School, Haleakala Waldorf School and a myriad of other places inspiring students of all ages. In 1995, he started the Annual Youth ‘Ukulele Players Contest at the Hula Grill which continues to this day. He continues to teach private lessons from his present home in Hilo on the Big Island through his non-profit, the Center for Hawaiian Music Studies. His professional students include the Slack Key Show’s Ukulele Boyz (Peter deAquino & Garrett Probst) and Hoku Award winning Brittni Paiva. Keoki has recorded with his father in Ho‘oilina – The Legacy, with Herb Ohta, Jr. on Hawaiian from the Heart and Treasures of Aloha. Keoki’s solo CD, Liko, contains a wonderful mix of contemporary Hawaiian, ki ho’alu, ‘ukulele, and a hint of blues and was nominated for Best Slack Key in the Hawai‘i Music Awards. His latest solo CD, Rise & Shine features many Kahumoku family songs. Keoki is a farmer, hunter, & fisherman. Equally comfortable cooking for a crowd or performing for them, Keoki draws his inspiration from his Hawaiian roots. Like his dad, Keoki’s performance is as much about his relaxed, engaging “talk story” as it is about his wide ranging traditional and contemporary Hawaiian repertoire. Keoki earned a Hoku Award for producing Best Compilation for Hula! Big Island Style – Various Artists. He is also an artist on 5 Grammy winning Best Hawaiian Music CDs: 2005 Slack Key Guitar Volume 2 - 47th Grammy Awards winner 2006 Masters of Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar, Volume 1 - 48th Grammy Awards winner 2007 Legends of Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar – Live from Maui – 49th Grammy Awards winner 2008 Treasures of Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar - 50th Grammy Awards winner 2009 The Spirit of Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar – 51st Grammy Award nominee 2010 Masters of Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar, Volume 2 52nd Grammy Award winner
