We hosted a back yard kanikapila for our ukulele club in our shaded back yard and porch a couple of weeks ago. Ten players and a half-dozen of our neighbors sitting outside the circle to listen. That worked so much better than Zoom. Maintaining social distance, it all worked pretty well. Another kani is pending for this Monday evening. We expect nice warm weather too.
Until we can gather indoors again, this is what we have - maybe not ideal but better than no music at all.
Once again, our ukulele club meets in our shaded backyard tonight for kanikapila. We've had a fair amount of activity there with guitar friends coming over to jam. Not a lot of connection with my local Hawaiian friends, though. All of the Uncles and Aunties (including me) are in high-risk groups and avoiding much direct contact.
And our Washington gathering in early October has now been officially cancelled. Understandable given the circumstances but we were really looking forward to the gathering. Sigh.... next year.
