Hoopii Brothers

Solomon Ka’alawa Ho’opi’i was born on March 28, 1935.
His younger brother, Richard Kealoha Ho’opi’i, Sr. was born on March 15, 1941.
They were born and raised in tiny Kahakuloa Village on the rugged North Shore of West Maui, known for its traditional lifestyle.
Rick & Sol sang at church & family gatherings, and were inspired by the recordings of Joe Keawe and Genoa Keawe.
Soon, the brothers developed their own style of Hawaiian male falsetto singing.
The Ho’opi’i Brothers are 2015 inductees into the Lifetime Achievement Awards of the Hoku Awards!
Today, we’ll listen to favorite selections of the Ho’opi’i Brothers, from recordings in the Territorial Airwaves archives.
