As teenagers, Ledward and his twin brother Nedward Ka‘apana and cousin Dennis Pavao formed the Hui ‘Ohana, one of the hottest groups of the 70s and 80s and now legendary among Hawaiian musicians. The 70s saw the blossoming of the Hawaiian Renaissance, and Hui ‘Ohana was a key part of that return to traditional Hawaiian culture and music. Young Hawaii Sings Old Hawaii, the title of their first recording, was also their statement of purpose.
The twin brothers Led and Ned, and cousin Dennis Pavao are perhaps the most natural musicians and singers in the Islands. Cousin Dennis is the outstanding falsetto lead singer and sets the basic rhythm for the group on his guitar. Led is unquestionably the fastest slack key artist in Hawaii and Ned plays the wonderful electric bass and is the comedian of the group.
The group produced 14 best-selling albums and made countless hundreds of live appearances, proudly sharing Kalapana's musical traditions.
