Nānā I Ke Kumu: Look to the Masters

PA'I Foundation 

Partner: Los Texmaniacs


Nānā I Ke Kumu will introduce Max Baca y Los Texmaniacs to Hawai’i and provide opportunities for cultural exchange with Pua Ali'i 'Ilima, the students at the University of Hawai'i and the broader Hawaiian community. Champions of a well-cured, San Antonio sound, Max Baca y Los Texamaniacs continue the tradition of accordion-bajo sexto driven Tex/Mex dance bands that combine polka, rock en español and Texas blues. This is an opportunity for intercultural learning, and in this case, how Los Texmaniacs, Max Baca and his family are using their music and cultural practice to strengthen their own families and community.
