Stephen Kent
is one of the premier Didgeridoo virtuosos in the contemporary world. Born British he was raised in East Africa and in a career spanning well over 3 decades based at various times in Australia, Spain, the UK and now the San Francisco Bay Area, he has pioneered the modern day use of the ancient Australian Aboriginal instrument. He was introduced to the Didge and to Aboriginal culture in 1981 working as Musical Director of Australia’s Circus Oz which led to a deeper exploration of the traditional origins and culture of the instrument. A catalog of over 20 CD releases spanning 1988 to the present day forms the backbone of his considerable record. Including 7 solo works, and multiple collaborations with group projects Trance Mission, Lights in a Fat City and, most recently, Australian Bebop Ragas & Baraka Moon collaboration across cultural boundaries is at the root of his interest. He has worked with extraordinary musicians & artists around the planet including Airto Moreira (Brazil), Zakir Hussain (India), Habib Koite (Mali), Rahim Al Haj (Iraq), Zap Mama (Belgium,Congo), Chirgilchin (Tuva), Samulnori (Korea), Leonard Eto (Japan), Omar Sosa (Cuba), Paul Horn, Glen Velez, Del Sol Quartet, R.Carlos Nakai (USA), among countless others.

Baraka Moon ~ An Evening of ​E​cstatic Sufi Dance & Trance Grooves

7:30pm - 9:30pm
Other Kalani - see description

Based in The San Francisco Bay Area and bringing together global citizens with origins in Pakistan, the UK, Canada and the USA  Baraka Moon's all original music ignites from ancient Qawaali Sufi trance songs, Indian classical ragas, Middle Eastern overtones and African drums & percussion, along with the Australian Aboriginal didgeridoo and brings all those influences together into an uplifting and resonant whole -  spiritually charged and soulful dance music with a positive message of peace for the whole world!



Baraka is the Sufi word for blessing. Charismatic and passionate vocalist Sukhawat Ali Khan fronts Baraka Moon performing on the harmonium and drawing from his luminary family's 600 years of vocal tradition with a voice that comes straight from the heart, while didjeridu virtuoso Stephen Kent, a globally acclaimed pioneer in bringing the ancient Aboriginal instrument to the contemporary world, plows a deep earthy groove and shakes it down together with Peter Warren's driving drums as Anastasi Mavrides paints singing constellations with his shimmering guitar. Open your soul and sing your heart! Even the gods are dancing and smiling!!!


Formed on the night of a blood moon eclipse Baraka Moon brings together a unique and ecstatic combination of traditional and contemporary Pakistani and Indian music with the Australian Aboriginal Didjeridu, combining them with an afro-funking blues rhythm section that whirls the frenzied crowd into the stratosphere!

Adventures in Hawaiian Shamanism with Stewart Blackburn

1:30pm - 3:30pm
Other Kalani - see description


 Adventures in Hawaiian Shamanism is a series of stand-alone classes that explore the esoteric knowledge of Ancient Hawaii. This form of that knowledge is called Huna and comes from the island of Kauai. In these classes we work with the elements, the animals, the plants, and the Spirits for healing and self-knowledge. The guiding principle is Aloha and all that we do is an extension of that principle. We use a Huna-style Shamanic Journey in each class to explore and work with the inner world to help make the outer world a better place.

This month's topic: The Magic of Asking for What You Want

It’s one thing to have desires and to deeply want things. But nothing is going to happen until we actively ask for these things and do our part to bring them about. Of course, we have to be willing to receive them as well. But there is amazing power in the simple act of asking.


Stewart Blackburn is a shamanic practitioner and teacher whose focus is on helping people become self-empowered and self-loving. He is an ordained senior teacher (alaka'i) of Aloha International (Huna) who teaches many classes, both at Kalani and online. He is a writer, a counselor, and a healer, and many people have found his book, The Skills of Pleasure, very helpful. He lives quietly in the jungle near Kalani with his dog, Pono.

Kalani Permaculture Series: Intuitive Honeybee Care with Jen Rasmussen

1:30pm - 4:30pm
Other Kalani - see description

This workshop will help you identify the castes of honeybees, the delicious & amazing products they create, and identify the pests & diseases that could harm them. The focus of this workshop is to offer insight into how bees communicate, why & how they do what they do, and how to use preventive care to protect them from harmful pests & diseases. We will be working with top bar hives that have been established at Kalani since August 2015. These hives will demonstrate for us through a hands on learning experience all of their incredible skills and masterful designs.


Jen Rasmussen started learning about bees about eight years ago here on the Big Island.  After a few months working with bees, several pests & diseases made their way to the Big Island.  The learning curve was rough for many bees & their keepers.  Several beekeepers lost their bees and struggled to recover.  At this time Jen Rasmussen began her journey learning how to care for bees with these new pests & diseases without the use of chemical treatments.

Over the years the bees have grown strong and capable of protecting and sustaining their hives.  It may be witnessed at Paradise Nectar Apiaries, even after many losses, the strong bees survive, and create the new hives that will repopulate the apiary.  Jen Rasmussen encourages strong hygienic behavior in the hives and teaches how to provide preventative hive management that will keep the bees healthy and strong.
