Sweet Harmonies of Kaiholu Fill Atherton for First Time Nov. 29

Winner of the prestigious Ka Himeni ‘Ana Hawaiian music competition in 2009, Kaiholu makes its HPR Atherton Studio debut on November 29. The quartet (Nathaniel Mahealani Stillman, Trax Enos, Albert Rowland Jr., and Henry Hanale Ka‘anapu) is known for its vibrant sound and rich harmonies reminiscent of the Sons of Hawai‘i. Their name, taken from Enos' middle name, means "swaying sea," which is also the name of their self-produced debut CD released in 2013.

Tickets for Kaiholu's premier Atherton concert are $30 general, $25 for HPR members, and $15 for students with ID. The Atherton regularly sells out and patrons are advised to reserve their tickets early. Purchase may be completed online at or by calling the station (955-8821) during regular business hours. The Atherton Studio is located at Hawai‘i Public Radio, 738 Kaheka Street. Doors open at 7:00 p.m.; music begins at 7:30 p.m.

Ka Himeni ‘Ana was founded by Richard M. Towill and features undiscovered Hawaiian music groups performing in the "nahenahe" style, the distinctive Hawaiian music form that features sweet vocal harmony and is supported by unamplified acoustic instruments.

About Kaiholu

Nathaniel Mahealani Stillman (bass) graduated from the Kamehameha Schools in 1996. He started performing Hawaiian music in 1999, and has traveled across the United States and Asia performing on behalf of the Hawai‘i Visitors and Convention Bureau and Hawai‘i Tourism Authority.

Trax Enos (‘ukulele) was born and raised in Kailua and comes from a long line of musicians and entertainers. He worked as a musician for the Paradise Cove luau show and, as a disc jockey on KCCN Radio, was known as "T-Daddy."

Albert Rowland Jr. (guitar) was raised in Papakolea and Wai‘anae. He picked up his love for guitar in intermediate school music classes (for which he was not enrolled). The interest continued and led him to Japan where he and two dancers traveled for months performing Polynesian music and Tahitian drumming. Albert has played with a number of well-known artists and for tourist attractions across the island.

Henry Hanale Ka‘anapu (guitar) was born in Wahiawa and raised in the Kapalama area. He started playing piano at the age of ten and taught himself bass and guitar when he was 18. After high school, Hanale served in the Army for three years, then joined the National Guard. After his military service, he began traveling with the Hawai‘i Visitors and Convention Bureau as a hula dancer and musician. In 1997, he began playing bass for the Hawaiian music group Tamala‘i. Ka‘anapu established his audio company, Ha.Ka. Entertainment and became the audio engineer for well-known Hawaiian musicians such as Ho‘okena, Ten Feet, The Makaha Sons, Keali‘i Reichel, and Amy Hanaiali‘i Gilliom.
