Guitarists' Workshop with CYRIL PAHINUI, Oct. 14, 1PM (Free and Open to Public!)
The Center for Ethnomusicology Proudly Presents:
A Guitar Workshop with Hawaiian slack key guitar virtuoso:
In conjunction with his performance on Saturday, Oct. 12 at 8PM in Davis Auditorium, Hawaiian slack key guitar virtuoso Cyril Pahinui will be offering a master class for guitarists at 1PM on Sunday, Oct. 14, in 112 Dodge Hall on the Columbia Morningside campus.
This master-class is free open to the public and all guitarists are invited. However, space is limited. Please contact Prof. Fellezs at kf2362 @ columbia.edu to inquire about reserving a place. If you do not have a reserved place, be sure to arrive promptly at 1PM.
Cyril Pahinui is one of Hawai‘i’s most gifted guitarists and singers. Cyril has performed at Carnegie Hall, contributed to three GRAMMYTM Award-winning albums, received several Hoku Hanohano Awards, and recorded on more than 35 Hawaiian musical releases. As a slack key guitarist, Cyril’s technical virtuosity imparts the soul of Hawaiian music, and his beautiful, emotive, and well-recognized voice renders an intimate picture of his Pacific island home.
