Kahulanui (The Big Dance) is an inspiration passed down three generations to band leader, Lolena Naipo, Jr. Lolena’s grandfather, Robert Kahulanui Naipo Sr., was a member of the Royal Hawaiian Band, during an era when horns and drums were a part of Hawaiian music. This talented nine-piece has borrowed from those orchestral influences to perform classic songs, in syncopated style, making Hawaiian swing vibrant and alive. Don’t miss a moment of Kahulanui, when they’re on the mainland.
