About Me

“First and foremost I consider myself a storyteller and I feel like there are so many stories about life in Hawai’i that have yet to be told”

With a deep voice and sure hand, Dagan is one of Waimea’s most authentic folk musicians infusing Hawaiian stylings into his own original compositions to create a refreshing sub-genre he calls “paniolo folk music.” His music hints at honest beginnings in an off-the-grid family and years spent playing alongside the legendary Hawaiian artist Braddah Smitty. By blending the two genres, Dagan has created a style that pays tribute to the ranching history of Hawai’i while embracing mainstream folk sounds.
