Played with the heart and soul through the fingers, flowing with vivid tropical images, Ki ho'alu or Slack Key is one of the great acoustic guitar traditions of the world. This evocative music is characterized by a variety of tunings and the wealth of deep feelings each individual artist brings to the music.
Patrick Landeza, considered by world renowned pianist George Winston as ”one of the best and most dedicated of the new generation of slack key players,"; continues the slack key tradition by sharing what he has learned with others. As a teenager, Patrick studied under the masters of Slack Key, which has contributed to his traditional style of ki ho'alu. Landeza currently tours the world performing and conducting slack key clinics and workshops.
