Group members Kama Hopkins, Kekoa Kaluhiwa and Kanai'a Nakamura have committed themselves to careful perpetuation of the Hawaiian language and are devoted to the playing of traditional and contemporary Hawaiian music. This firm foundation makes Holunape a popular band among hula enthusiasts in Hawai'i and around the globe. The name "HOLUNAPE" refers to a gentle bending and swaying motion, akin to a coconut frond in a light tropical breeze. As such, the nahenahe (soothing) music performed by the trio often compels the listener to sway in similar fashion.

Whether you're celebrating a birthday party, wedding, anniversary, company party, or you have a halau hula in need of musical support, the music of Holunape is promised to be a perfect complement for your special occasion!
