Kanikapila Island Strummers - Soulfish Grill - Richardson, TX

June 11 is Kamehameha Day, a public holiday for the state of Hawaii. It honors Kamehameha the Great, the monarch who first established the unified Kingdom of Hawaii – comprised of the islands of Niihau, Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Lanai, Kahoolawe, Maui, and Hawaii. For our June Kanikapila monthly celebration of Hawaiian music and culture, we will pay homage to that very special day, as we look forward to having fun times with our Kanikapila Ohana (family and friends)Hawaiian Style! We urge all Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced Ukulele Players to come join the fun!

Kanikapila literally means“play music”and we’d like all you kanes and wahine to come join us, kick back, relax, be yourself and just take it easy. We’ll take a look at a few Hawaiian words and phrases and the Hawaiian alphabet, and sing a few Hawaiian songs!

The Aloha Spirit is alive and well in Texas!!!

Space is limited to 50 participants.
