Take a trip back in time to an era when Hawaiian culture and music blended fluidly with American Jazz, a beautiful melding that came to be known as Hawaiian Swing.

Experience an evening of Big Band music as Grammy-award nominated Kahulanui takes you on a journey through the decades.

This past summer, Kahulanui travelled to Orlando, Florida, for the grand opening of Universal Studio’s new waterpark, Volcano Bay Resort.

Their music is on the instructional video, How to Tapu Tapu, where visitors learn how to use wristbands (tapu tapu) for the waterpark.
