Waipuna

The Hawaiian word waipuna, translates into “spring water”, an essential resource for supporting life, the very definition of wealth.  Just like the refreshing spring water that continually bubbles forth from the ground, the Hawaiian music group, Waipuna, who burst upon the music scene in 2008, has sustained a steady pulse of creative energy.

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 group consists of founding members Kale Hannahs and Matt Sproat, as well as David Kamakahi, who joined the group in 2011.  The eclectic collaboration of these 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 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.

As full-time musicians, the trioʻs active tour schedule keeps them busy throughout the year, with shows from Japan to North America and even Europe.  Kale, Matt and David take pride in the responsibility of sharing the Hawaiian culture in their travels, and enjoy reshaping and redefining peopleʻs understanding and expectations of Hawaiian music.

“A kahe mau ka wai ola o ke ao nei…” – And thus, the living water flows on…
