Grammy-nominated Na Hoku Hanohano award winner Kahulanui, which means the big dance, is an inspiration passed down from grandfather Robert Kahulanui Naipo, to father Rodgers L.L. Naipo, Sr., to Kahulanui band leader, Lolena Naipo, Jr. Lolena remembers listening to his grandfather’s stories about playing in the Royal Hawaiian Band in an era when horns and drums were a big part of Hawaiian music. In the 1930s and 40s, Hawaiian swing got the whole house jumping. Today Kahulanui gives Hawaiian swing new life!
