Jim “Kimo” West

Jim “Kimo” West is recognized as one of the world’s top practitioners of the art of traditional Hawaiian “slack key” guitar. Based on a variety of open tunings, slack key, like the waters of his second home of Hana, Maui, wash over you. He is a recent winner of the Hawaii Music Awards, a nominee for the Na Hoku Hanohano (the Hawaiian “Grammy”), and a two-time winner of the LA Treasures Award for his contributions toward the perpetuation of ki ho’alu (Hawaiian slack key music).
