Kahulanui (The Big Dance) is an inspiration passed down three generations. Kahulanui band leader Lolena Naipo Jr. remembers stories of his Grandfather, who was a member of the Royal Hawaiian Band during an era when horns and drums were a part of Hawaiian music. Throughout Hawai’i in the 1920’s and 1930’s, 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.
