The Hui Ohana came to Honolulu a few years ago from their home in Kalapana, the "black sands" area of the Big Island. They are now Hawaii's most popular recording group.
The twin brothers, Ledward and Nedward Kaapana, 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. Twin brother Ledward is unquestionably the fastest slack key artist in Hawaii and the other twin, Nedward, plays the wonderful electric bass and is the comedian of the group.
This is the Hui Ohana's fifth album and, if it becomes as popular as their first, the boys will be looking for a gold record . . and don't let the Kalapana picture with the pet pigs fool you .. . they're enjoying it too!
