Presented here, Moses plays a six-string Spanish style nylon string guitar and George plays a twelve-string steel string guitar. For the sake of economy, the have developed a style in which they divide and interweave both melodies and various parts of bass, rhythm, and lead.

On a higher level, the Brothers feel that their music is a reflection of their individual spirits and values. George is a farmer who works the aina (land) and Moses, the fisherman, has closer ties with the kai (ocean). Thus their music and be described as a coming together of the land and the sea.
