Kaua‘i Steel Guitar Festival

Kika Pila

Keoki's Paradise in Poipu Beach hosted a pre-festival "Kika Pila" jam session on Thursday, February 1, 2018. The event, open to festival guests and the general public, featured various festival featured players, musicians, hula dancers, and guests. A rainy evening greeted everyone and forced the musicians to move around the small stage area to avoid getting them and their instruments wet.
