Album Notes

In the late 1970ís these young native Hawaiian musicians had a unique sound of their own. Makapu`u Sand Band was four cousins (one calabash) consisting of Andrew Iaukea Bright, David Kawika Kamai, Joby Harris, and Albert Ka`ai.

These four young men from Waimanalo became interested in their Hawaiian heritage, and more specifically, in Hawaiian music, in their early teens. The group had a modern acoustical sound that was popular with the youth of Hawai`i in the 1970ís, while at the same time they did not sacrifice the feel of traditional Hawaiian music.
