Imagine sitting under a canopy of Oaks beneath the stars at the beautiful Libbey Bowl and listening to the music of Keola Beamer, renowned slack key guitar master, the melodic Native American flutes of the incredible R. Carlos Nakai, the jazz piano stylings of famed musician Geoffrey Keezer and the flowing dances of Moanalani Beamer. All this and more awaits you at the 3rd Annual Ojai World Music festival when these four wonderful artists come together in a performance that is touring the nation based on the PBS special called "MĀLAMA KO ALOHA (“KEEP YOUR LOVE”)". This concert celebrates the many facets of aloha harmony with beautiful songs from a mix of cultural traditions that will be exciting and inspirational.

Beautiful Ojai Valley
In fast-paced Southern California, Ojai remains a place apart, suspended in time.
Tucked away from the world, like the mythical paradise of Shangri-La, Ojai offers a place to relax, wind back the clock and rediscover nature, art and yourself.
