The Mākaha Sons of Ni‘ihau were a Hawaiian musical group. They originated on the leeward (Kona or westerly) side of Oahu. After the deaths of the Kamakawiwoʻole brothers, including nationally known Israel Kamakawiwoʻole, the remaining members dropped the "of Niihau" and now are known as the Makaha Sons, consisting of Louis "Moon" Kauakahi on 6-string guitar, John Koko on upright acoustic bass and Jerome Koko on 12-string guitar.

The Mākaha Sons of Niihau and the Makaha Sons have released 21 CDs, and produced a DVD on their own record label. They have won Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards and Hawaii Music Awards. They produce their own signature concert, "Take a Walk in the Country," in Hawaii each year. They produce and promote young artists in traditional Hawaiian music.
