The term “kanikapila” comes from the words “kani,” meaning “sound,” and “pila” which refers to any type of string instrument.  Traditionally, kanikapila refers to a style of music created when people get together for a jam session of sorts and often times mash up different pieces of music.  A great example of a song that is representative of this style is Israel Kamakawiwo’ole’s “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” which beautifully blends “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and “What a Wonderful World.”

Irina Delatorre, is one of many talented local singers that play at Turtle Bay’s Kanikapila Night at Surfer, The Bar.

 

Kanikapila has also come to refer to open mic nights at venues like Turtle Bay’s Surfer, The Bar.  Every Tuesday at Surfer, visitors and locals alike are invited to grab their instrument of choice (including simply their vocal chords) and hop on stage!  Even if you’re not brave enough to take the stage yourself, pull up a seat, get a cocktail, and enjoy the night.  The caliber of talent that graces the Kanikapila at Surfer, The Bar’s stage is something to behold.
