Henry Kapono: Henry Kapono Ka’aihue is an award winning and Grammy nominated singer/songwriter. He has taken home numerous Na Hoku Hano Hano Awards (Hawaii’s equivalent of the Grammy’s) including Male Vocalist of the Year, Song of the Year, Single of the Year, and Album of the Year.
Forming a collaboration with Cecilio Rodriguez, from California, the duo, known as “Cecilio and Kapono” became an instant phenomenon that took Hawaii by storm. “C&K” have recorded 12 albums to date and reunite annually.
Continually evolving, in 1981 Henry pursued a solo career with the extremely successful release of “Kapono - Stand in the Light”. Since then he has created an incredibly broad range of musical expressions through 14 solo albums to date. Kapono has become a household name throughout Hawaii and the Pacific. His music transcends his Hawaiian heritage which he prides so much and embodies the spirit of Aloha that he has for all people. Henry has the gift that most great artists share: the ability to enable us to gaze upon their painting or ponder their work or listen to their music - and find new meaning and purpose in our own lives. Henry touches the soul with the simple honesty of his lyrics and music, and the gift of an evocative, plaintive balladeer's voice that haunts you long after he leaves the stage.
