Kahele has been a part of the hula and music scene since he was six years old. He trained as a kane dancer under legendary Hilo kumu hula Johnny Lum Ho until he was 13.

At the age of 17, Kahele and Hilo native and musician, Kehau Tamure, started one of the most popular Hawaiian music groups to date, Nā Palapalai. The duo released “Makani ʻOluʻolu” in 2002. Kahele’s original, “Ke Anu ʻO Waimea” is still the most popular hula song in Japan.
