Music and Yoga: Puna Music Festival Experience

Kalani Staff

May 7, 2014 - May 12, 2014

Hawaii Music Festival LogoCome celebrate Puna and enjoy the opening weekend of the Puna Music Festival, presented by KAPA FM, home of Hawaii's music, and supported by the County of Hawaii and Hawaii Tourism Authority.

With four major concerts and a schedule full of workshops and special gatherings, this week-long celebration is sure to be fun for all ages. 

Included Events:

On Wednesday, May 7th, we feature the Kalapana Night Market and the extraodinary Hawaiian music this venue has become known for. The night market draws people from all over the island, and this special evening will be an extra-special tribute to home-grown Hawaiian music.

Our Intimate Concert this year is on Friday, May 9th, an intimate talk-story/concert featuring one of the top names in Hawaiian music. This year's concert features Kaumakiwa Kanakaole, an inspiring voice of the new generation of Hawaiian performers, whose family has deep roots with the land.

Indulge yourself with dinner, shopping, and sound at the incredible Kanikapila in Pahoa on Saturday, May 10th. Music plays from windows, balconies, and storefronts throughout the town - it's like a musical scavenger hunt. Come for a whole lot of fun, and let music inspire you. 

The Puna Music Festival is more than just entertainment. This event uniquely focuses on crowdsourcing, bridging the audience/performer divide, and Hawaiian music culture.  Experiment with and develop your musical talent in one of our included workshops.


  • Songwriting with Paula Fuga
  • Guitar Loops with Mike Love
  • 'Ohe Hano Ihu (Nose Flute)
  • Ukulele
  • Slack Key Guitar
  • Chanting (Oli)

Le`a ka pu`uwai i ke kani ka pila.
Joyous is the heart upon the sound of music.

May your Puna Music Festival experience bring you great joy, as music fills the sweet air of glorious Puna.
