Guitarist takes stand at Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation dinner
“It was an incredible experience to sing those words to that group of people,” said Makana.
Hawaiian guitarist Makana played the White House in 2009, and at the APEC gala last night, Makana made a musical statement. His unbuttoned suit jacket revealed a shirt that read “Occupy with Aloha.” He performed an Occupy Together-themed “We Are the Many,” wherein he blasted corporate lobbyists and called on Americans to occupy “the streets,” re-starting and playing several different versions of the tune for 45 minutes in front of world leaders.
