Kapala is a unique blend of music veterans and close friends that have come together to make their own “Imprint” on today’s music scene. Led by Na Hoku Hanohano award winners Zanuck Lindsey (Hula Joe & the Hut Jumpers, 2000) & Kimo Artis (Kanilau, 2005). The members of Kapala (Kai Artis, Lopaka Ho'opi'i, Richard Heirakuji, Adj Larioza) have backed up or been members of some of Hawaii’s finest groups (Leilani Rivera Bond, Kalapana, Na Kama, Na Leo, Nohelani Cypriano, O'Brian Eselu, Palani Vaughn & the King's Own, Raiatea Helm) it is from this experience that Kapala draws it’s inspiration and desire to make their own mark. Kapala combines traditional and contemporary Hawaiian music with blues, country, jazz, reggae, rock, swing, to create their own "Hawaiian Pop" sound that is innovative, exciting, memorable, and at the forefront of today's music scene. In 7 years together they have released 3 critically acclaimed Cd's. "Imprint", "Come on Home" and the 2013 Na Hoku Hanohano nominated "Legacy".
