Led Kaapana
“…He’s an absolute genius on guitar, ukulele, steel guitar, autoharp … and he is still a humble giant…”—Keith Haugen, freelance writer, Honolulu
A master of the slack key guitar and National Heritage Fellow, Led Kaapana has been one of Hawaii’s most influential musicians for four decades. His mastery of stringed instruments, his exceptional picking style on slack key guitar and ‘ukulele, and his extraordinary baritone to leo ki`eki`e (falsetto) vocal range, have made him a musical legend and earned him multiple Na Hōkū Awards.
 
“Herb Ohta Jr. is the undisputed master ‘ukulele instrumentalist of his generation.”  –Honolulu Star-Advertiser
‘Ukulele virtuoso Herb Ohta Jr’s natural talent, knowledge, technique, and speed are unsurpassed. Herb’s versatility and ability to adapt to the changing times will captivate you, the listener, and transport you. As a master ukulele performer, composer, recording artist, and teacher, it is Herb’s goal to share the beauty of Hawai’i’s music, its culture, and the ‘ukulele to people all over the world. Son of the legendary ukulele artist Ohta-san, his first formal teacher, Herb learned his first ‘ukulele song at age three. Now a multiple award-winner, with 4 Na Hoku Awards and 4 Hawai‘i Music Awards, he creates unique arrangements of new and familiar tunes and makes each song breathtakingly fresh and definitely his own. Herb’s style is distinct and recognizable with a graceful “nahenahe” quality (gentle, melodious, emotionally evocative and satisfying) that is very Hawaiian, reflecting the inspirations of ukulele greats that came before him.
