Eddie Kamae – Ukulele Festival Hawaii Legacy Award - lanikai-beach.net

Honolulu, Hawaii 2017. Ukulele Hawaii Legacy Award honors Eddie Leilani Kamae for his lifetime contributions over the course of his illustrious career. Ukulele virtuoso Eddie Leilani Kamae’s story began when he taught himself to the ukulele. From that moment on, Kamae was captivated by it’s sound and loved classical, Latin, popular, and jazz tunes which required a mastery of theory and technique that few, if any, had ever attained on the ukulele. Kamae revolutionized the traditional method of playing the ukulele and transformed it from a rhythmic instrument with limited capabilities into a major instrument with unlimited potential. The turning point in his musical career was when he devoted himself exclusively to traditional Hawaiian music influenced by the haunting memory of the only thing his father asked him to do – to sing and play Hawaiian music.
Ukulele Hawaii founders, and Kathy Sakuma, have dedicated their life’s work to preserving interest in the ukulele and spreading aloha by bringing bringing laughter, love and hope to the world through the music of the ukulele.
