Kanikapila is a Hawaiian word that means "getting together to make music." Del Medina, King of North Bay Kanikapila, who lives in San Rafael, and his group of musicians have “packed the house” every time they’ve been in Sonoma this year. It's held from 2 - 4 p.m. the fourth Saturday of the month, at the Sonoma Woman’s Club, in the center of wine country.
We invite all ukulele players, guitar players, hula dancers, singers, kazoo players, and foot thumpers. Admission is free, but a $5 donation is requested to help maintain the historic and beautiful clubhouse, which is just half a block off the Sonoma Plaza.
Light refreshments will be provided by members of Hula Mai, and you are welcome to bring your own food and refreshments if you like.
