Old School Entertainment – Unplugged

This year the San Diego Shaka Fest will have live entertainment performed old-school – unplugged!

That’s correct; our entertainers will be playing their instruments without a sound system.  You will get to hear them perform with natural sound.  So come sit on the grass next to the beach, pull up a lawn chair or a blanket as we take you back in-time to the clean soothing natural sounds that came from the Central & South Pacific Islands – unplugged!

Special Dedication to Kumu Hula Auntie Barbara Anuenue Finneran of Hula Halāu O Pualani

It was our hope to have a “Keiki Hula” competition dedicated to Kumu Hula Auntie Barbara Anuenue Finneran this year but it did not work out.  We will try again next year and it will be dedicated to her when it happens.   However, many of her haumāna will be gathering at the San Diego Shaka Fest this year on Saturday April 25, 2015 to do a special hula and dedication to our beloved kumu hula Auntie Barbara Anuenue Finneran.  We hope you will join us for this special moment when we get to show our gratitude to a very special Kumu Hula who selfishlessly gave so much of herself and did her part to perpetuate the Hawaiian Culture.

If your hālau, dance group, or unplugged instrumental band is not on this list of performers and you would like to perform at the 2015 San Diego Shaka Fest please email us at: shaka@sandiegoshakafest.com or if your keiki’s would like to compete in our 1st Annual Mālama Hula O Nā Keiki Dance Competition please email us at: shaka@sandiegoshakafest.com

Mahalo nui loa!
