In the early 1990s, Hawaiian Style Band, led by Bryan Kessler and Wade Cambern, redefined contemporary Hawaiian music. They offered a fresh musical perspective on local culture with original compositions about living Hawaiian style — about island romance, talking story, ohana and sovereignty.

Their interpretation of Hawaiian language songs reacquainted music fans with these important compositions.
