Freestyling at La Hiki Ola Kava Bar @ Pahoa, Big Island Hawaii video

As I’ve said before, La Hiki Ola is a special place in Puna. In addition to serving delicious native Kava drink, they host an open mic night every Monday, an event that would often surprise me with the amount of talent presented.

And sometimes, people would freestyle. If you’re not familiar, free styling is like rapping without any written lyrics. Everything just flows from you in the moment. It’s kind of like a poetry slam, but you have to match it to the beat of the music. Not an easy task, but the video below is a fun example of it. Enjoy!
