“honors the Hawaiian language and displays the art of Hawaiian poetry in song. ” – KKCR
With dramatic musical arrangements and progressive instrumentation, Waipunaʻs one-of-a-kind sound combines the traditional teachings of their mentors and expands the boundaries and expectations of todayʻs Hawaiian music. The eclectic collaboration of three uniquely talented individuals not only provides for an innovative sound but allows the group to successfully cross-over (as well as combine) various genres of music with ease.
Waipunaʻs music has been widely appreciated and enjoyed not only by the people of Hawaiʻi, but also by a wide spectrum of audiences around the world. They have provided inspirational accompaniment for hula dancers, touched hearts through their poetry and earned seven Nā Hōkū Hanohano awards (Hawaiʻiʻs version of the Grammy Awards) for their first four albums.
