Blue Note Hawaii    (13 votes)
Keauhou    (0 Votes)
Keauhou finds passion and joy in the performance, preservation, and perpetuation of traditional Hawaiian music.

The name, "Keauhou," was suggested by Hailama Farden, while the trio played music at the Kamehameha School's Midkiff Library. This library is home to the waa (Hawaiian canoe) named "Makani Hou o Keauhou," under which the group performed. Translated as "the new wind of Keauhou," this waa became the inspiration for the group name, "Keauhou." While the Hawaiian language offers a multiplicity of meanings and translations, the groups name can be translated as "the new/renewed generation."

This name defines the young trio, Kahanuola Solatorio, and brothers, Nicholas and Zachary Lum, as they strive to bring forth inspiration from Hawaiian music of the eras preceding them, and contribute to a renewed respect and interest for the incomparable beauty of traditional Hawaiian music.

These three graduates of the Kamehameha Schools Kapālama found their musical roots through their involvement in the many musical and cultural opportunities offered at Kamehameha Schools. They sang in the Concert Glee Club, played in the Band, and both Lum brothers held the esteemed positions as their class' student director in the world-renowned Song Contest.

Kahanuola and Nicholas recently graduated with their Master's Degree in the fields of Education and Hawaiian language, respectively, at the University of Hawaii at Mānoa. Zachary is currently the Choral Director of the prestigious Kamehameha School's Concert Glee Club and also a Master's candidate in the field of Ethnomusicology at the University of Hawaii at Mānoa. All three are active and passionate educators and cultural practitioners in their fields.

In 2008, Keauhou was awarded first place in the unamplified traditional Hawaiian music contest, "Ka Himeni Ana," held annually at the Hawaii Theater. In 2017, Keauhou took top honors at the Nā Hōkū Hanoha
