100 Years of Family Tradition–Kamaka Ukulele

Happy Valentine’s Day to all chocolate and soft music lovers. Speaking of music, Hawai‛i Forest Tracks sends regards to Kamaka Hawaii Inc–because 2016 marks one hundred years since Samuel Kaialiilii Kamaka founded his Kamaka Ukulele and Guitar Works business on O’ahu in 1916.

Since then, he and his family have followed paths that have led to maintaining the reputation for craftsmanship for which Kamaka Hawaii Inc is known. Made from Hawaii’s koa wood and known for their enduring quality and design, Kamaka ukuleles are sold in the islands, nationally and internationally.
