Once he was discovered to have exceptional musical abilities he was pulled from the hula line and added as a permanent halau musician.

It became a Hawaiian Music Boot Camp of sorts, training him in the classics of Hawaiian music and prepping him for what was to come as a professional musician.

Henry Kapono Artist-To-Artist: Malani Bilyeu of Kalapana THURS 07/13
Ultra VIP $65, Premium $45, Loge $35, Bar $25
Join Grammy nominated & multiple award winning Henry Kapono as he presents an “Artist to Artist” concert series at the legendary Blue Note Hawaii featuring Hawaii’s most icon artists performing their hit songs that have become the anthems to growing up in Hawaii. Henry Kapono talks one on one “deconstructing” these artists careers as only an artist to artist can do followed by an intimate jam session and concert you don’t want to miss. In 1973, childhood friends Carl James Malani Bilyeu & David John (DJ) Pratt auditioned at the Rainbow Villa for Cecilio & Kapono. Malani was soloing at the Oar House in Hawaii Kai and DJ was downstairs at Chuck's in Sunlight with Kirk Thompson. They got together in DJ's grandfather's garage with Bryant Mackey Feary, another solo act, playing at the Oar House. They wrote songs, rehearsed, and at one point discussed the meaning of Kalapana. The literal translation of the word "Kalapana" is "sprouting money". Kirk said the meaning was "beat of the music" and DJ thought it meant "Black Sand". Regardless, they named themselves Kalapana, playing their first gig at Chuck's in Hawaii Kai.

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 waʻa (Hawaiian canoe) named “Makani Hou o Keauhou,” under which the group performed. Translated as “the new wind of Keauhou,” this waʻa 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 Hawaiʻi 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 Hawaiʻi 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 Hawaiʻi Theater. In 2017, Keauhou took top honors at the Nā Hōkū Hanohano awards attaining nine awards in nine categories for their debut album, "K
