Biography

The Mākaha Sons trace their roots to the Mākaha Sons of Ni‘ihau – the seminal Hawaiian group who released their first of 11 albums in 1976.  The Hawaiian Renaissance had begun renewing interest in Hawaiian music, culture, language, hula, and arts. The Mākaha Sons of Ni‘ihau rode the crest of that wave through 1993 while enduring changes in their lineup as new members came and went, including the sudden passing of leader Skippy Kamakawiwo‘ole in 1982. The two core members Israel Kamakawiwo‘ole and Louis “Moon” Kauakahi were there from the beginning.

In 1993, the Mākaha Sons of Ni‘ihau included Moon Kaukahi, Israel Kamakawiwo‘ole and brothers Jerome and John Koko.  Late in the year Israel decided to embark on a solo career and the others reformed as the Mākaha Sons to continue their brand of music.  For the next 20 years the group released seven more albums, traveled and performed extensively.

In 1994 the Mākaha Sons released their first recording as a trio. Ke Alaula – The Dawning was truly the dawning of a new chapter.  The Mākaha Sons were named the Group of the Year at the 1995 Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards, and Kauakahi won the Haku Mele Award (best Hawaiian language song) for “Ke Alaula” as well as the Liner Notes Award.

Kuikawā followed in 1996, and in rapid succession Christmas Day in Hawai‘i Nei (1997), Live on the Road (1997), and Sing Golden Hawaiian Melodies (1999).  Kuikawā was honored as the Hawaiian Album of the year at the 1997 Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards.  Over years the Mākaha Sons often invited other artists to accompany them and the 2001 anthology Nā Pua o Hawai‘i collected those tracks and continues as one of the most popular of their records.   In 2005 Poki Records released Heke wale nō – Only the Very Best of the Mākaha Sons recapping their incredible recording career.

John Koko passed away in 2012, and in 2013 Kaukahi retired from performing.  Today Jerome Koko continues with Kimo Artis and Mark Yim as the current Mākaha Sons.
