Grammy nominated KAHULANUI was inspired by band leader Lena Naipo’s grandfather, Robert Kahulanui Naipo, a band leader, arranger and composer in Hawaii back in the 1930s. His signature style married jazz and Hawaiian vocals in way we haven’t heard for many years. Kahulanui members include Lena Naipo (vocals and guitar); Pat Eskildsen (bass); Robert Duke Tatom (ukulele); and Tim Taylor on drums.The bandleader is Lena Naipo. They have captured the fabulous sound of Hawaii’s music of the Big Band Era!
