DID YOU KNOW?
Since this month's community event centers on the Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar Festival, this cultural byte centers on the slack-key guitar or, in Hawaiian, kī hōʻalu, which means "loosen the [tuning] key"). It is a fingerstyle genre of guitar music that originated in Hawai`i after Portuguese cowboys introduced Spanish guitars here in the late 19th century. Hawaiians did not embrace the tuning of the traditional Spanish guitars they encountered. They re-tuned the guitars to sound a chord (now called an "open tuning") and developed their own style of playing, not using a flat pick, but plucking the strings. Slack-key guitar was adapted to accompany the rhythms of the hula and the harmonic structures of Hawaiian music. The New York Times described the music as "liquid, rippling, and hypnotic". Today, the slack key guitar and its artisans are recognized around the world.
