Hawaiian guitarist Makana -- who is one of the guests at the forthcoming Womad in Taranaki -- offers a slack-key style of blues, jazz, Hawaiian and bluegrass sounds.
He turned professional when he was 14 and recently was nominated for a Grammy for his contributions to the soundtrack of the George Clooney film, set in Hawaii, The Descendants.
He's a man who also liks fresh food and so here shares a recipe which he and his sister Tiffani Nicole have come up with.
Feel free to change the ingredients a little (cold roasted kumara goes very well with a kale salad).
Raw Kale (torn)
Ambrosia Apple (sliced)
Candied Pecans (broken into pieces)
Dates (chopped then mashed)
Raw "nutty" Sheep Cheese (sliced)
Sea Salt (raw)
Put all ingredients in bowl
Hand-crush for a minute or so, Put some muscle into it! The kale should become fully soft and coated with the coconut oil and dates
Add a little squeeze of lemon
