With Special Guests Raiatea Helm & Josh Tatofi

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.

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-renown Song Contest.

Currently, Kahanuola, Nicholas, and Zachary are Masters candidates in the fields of Education, Hawaiian language, and Ethnomusicology, respectively, at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. All three are active and passionate educators and cultural practitioners in their field.

In 2008, Keauhou was awarded first place in the unamplified traditional Hawaiian music contest, “Ka Himeni Ana,” held annually at the HawaiÊ»i Theater. Since then, the group has performed at a variety of esteemed
