More! Ledward Kaapana and Family

Special | 28m 16s

Ledward Kaapana remembers his Uncle Fred Punahoa playing the song “Radio Hula” in Kalapana. “Radio Hula” is one of the songs that Ledward Kaapana, along with his sisters Lehua Nash, Rhoda Kekona, and Lei Aken play in his Kaneohe garage on a rainy evening. The family also shares an energetic slack key performance of “Kuu Ipo Onaona,” and Ledward honors the late Dennis Kamakahi.
