“Recalling some of our favorite events of the past, connected with some of our immensely talented friends, and got to work. Lōkahi: oneness, community, harmony, unity. Lōkahi is the Hawaiian word for people coming together to take care of one another, uniting as one. Join us as we come together as a community to share an amazing night under the stars with an incredible lineup of talent. Lukas Nelson’s vision for Lōkahi was to create an evening of special performances and celebration with his Hawai’i music community.
