Makana: We Are the Many

An original anthem for the Occupy movement.


In November, 2011, Hawaiian slack-key guitarist Makana performed for President Barack Obama at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation dinner. He surprised everyone by playing a song he had written about Occupy Wall Street, while sporting an "Occupy With Aloha" shirt. He played the song, "We Are the Many," for 45 minutes.


Hear Makana perform live on June 6, 2012 at Town Hall, Seattle. Click here to learn more about YES! Magazine's 2nd Annual Celebration of People Power.
