Ukulele Festival Hawaii is honored to celebrate the legacy of one of the great Hawaiian musicians and ukulele legends.
Ukulele virtuoso Leilani Kamae’s story began when he taught himself to play the ukulele. From that moment on, Kamae was captivated by it’s sound and loved classical, Latin, popular, and jazz tunes. 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 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 Festival Hawaii founders, Roy and Kathy Sakuma, have dedicated their life’s work to preserving interest in the ukulele and spreading aloha by bringing bringing laughter, and hope to the world through the music of the ukulele.
