Maoli Tribute to Bruddah Iz

Although it’s been over 20 years since his passing, the power of Israel Kaʻanoʻi Kamakawiwoʻole is still being felt.  Bruddah Iz, as he is affectionately known here in the islands, has laid down a template not only for musicianship but as an energetic demonstration for a whole generation of Hawaiians.

In the following video the members of Maoli (meaning ‘Native’ in Hawaiian), Glenn Awong and Kana Akiu-Corpuz, pay tribute to this legend of music and Hawaiian hero.  Please enjoy this heartfelt expression and beautiful performance of the song “Henehene Kou ‘Aka”.
