Product Description

2018 Na Hoku Hanohano Winner:

  • Jazz Album of the Year
  • Instrumental Composition of the Year, "Kahulanui Boogie Woogie"

Kahulanui (The Big Dance) is an inspiration passed down three generations from Grandfather Robert Kahulanui Naipo, to Dad Rodgers L.L. Naipo Sr., to Grandson and Kahulanui band leader, Lolena Naipo, Jr. Throughout Hawai‘i in the 1920s and 1930s, one could find orchestras playing Hawaiian Swing and the house would be jumping. Kahulanui borrowed from these influences and performs classic Hawaiian songs in a syncopated style making Hawaiian Swing vibrant and alive in Hawai‘i today. With Mele Ho'olina, the band launches a new chapter in their career as musicians, adding a missing piece of the Hawaiian culture to the modern day.
