Entertainment

The slack key style of guitar playing you're sure to hear when you visit was originally brought to the islands by Mexican cowboys who came to work the cattle ranches. Today, you'll can find these paniolos (cowboys) working at cattle ranches around Makawao.

For an experience closer to the resort areas, every Wednesday at Napili Kai Beach Resort, masters of the slack key guitar gather for an impressive show of traditional music. George Kahumoku Jr. serves as host and performer. The Grammy-winning artist is a legend among guitar players.

Stop for dinner at the excellent Sea House Restaurant or book a package that includes dinner and a show.
