Artist2Artist: Henry Kapono & Hawaiian Style Band

Friday, Jan 10 2020, 7:30 PM

McCoy Studio Theater

In this concert series, musicians talk-story, play music, and have fun! Each concert will feature Henry Kapono and different guest artists in an intimate format that offers the audience a rare opportunity to get up close and personal. The artists will share music and stories from their careers and answer questions, giving the audience an up-close-and-personal seat at the jam session.

This concert features Hawaiian Style Band.

Conceptualized in the ‘90s as a ‘revolving band,’ Hawaiian Style Band has included the musical synergy of more than 50 musicians and producers over the course of three albums.

In the early ’90s, Hawaiian Style Band, led by Bryan Kessler and Wade Cambern, redefined contemporary Hawaiian music. The addition of Grammy-nominated and multiple Nā Hōkū Hanohano award-winner Robi Kahakalau completed the collection of distinctive vocal harmony of Hawaiian Style Band.

They offered a fresh musical perspective on local culture with original compositions about living Hawaiian style—about island romance, talking story, ‘ohana, and sovereignty. Many of their songs remain iconic island anthems, including “Love and Honesty,” “Let’s Talk Story,” “Rhythm of the Ocean,” and “Live A Little.”

EXPLANATION OF HAWAIIAN LANGUAGE

Written Hawaiian uses two diacritical markings as pronunciation guides:

  • The ‘okina, which is typographically represented as a reversed apostrophe. In spoken Hawaiian, the ‘okina indicates a glottal stop, or clean break between vowels. If your browser supports this display (and it may not, depending on browser type and settings), an ‘okina should look like this: ‘. If browsing conditions do not support this display, you might be seeing a box, a blank space, or odd-looking character instead.
  • The kahako, or macron, which is typographically represented as a bar above the letter, as in ā (again, you will see it correctly only if your browser delivers it correctly). The macron on a vowel indicates increased duration in pronunciation of the vowel that it appears over.

Web browsers sometimes have difficulty reproducing these markings without the use of graphics, special fonts, or special coding. Even correctly authored Web pages that use Unicode coding may be transmitted through a server that displays the symbols incorrectly or the browser may use a replacement font that displays these incorrectly.

Since most browsers can and do display the ASCII grave symbol (‘) as coded, this site uses the grave symbol to represent the ‘okina. We do depict the correct ‘okina on all pages in the title graphic because it is embedded in the graphic and not displayed as text.

The kahako/macron is more problematic. Given the problems with displaying this with current technology, some websites resort to displaying these with diaeresis characters instead, as in ä, which will appear in most browsers (but not all) as an “a” with two dots over it. However, this is not a desirable solution because it doesn’t work uniformly in all browser situations. Until Unicode fonts are more universally displayable, the site reluctantly omits the kahako from most text.
