Review of Palika

Simply the best in charm, class, and cultural experience.

 “His voice, music and presentation was warm, intimate, and uplifting. He is a very charming presenter with a commanding presence. Also, his musical catalog goes long and deep — with his uncanny ability to blend timeless Hawaiian standards with today’s island hits. Such a gentle giant of a man who made what could’ve been a somber day, an unforgettable celebration of life!”
