Keeping the Hawaiian culture, spirit, and language alive is more than a lifestyle for Kamuela Kimokeo, it is his passion. Currently, Kamuela has earned his bachelor’s degree in education and minor in Hawaiian Studies at Brigham Young University–Hawaii, and is playing ‘ukulele and lead guitar for the band Hi`ikua. Having been raised by a family passionate about music and performing has undoubtedly given Kamuela his drive for success. Playing with his father Kimo gave Kamuela the chance to meet some of Waikiki’s finest musicians including but not limited to Mel Amina, Ryan Tang, and Ledward Ka’apana. We thank Kamuela for choosing to play an Islander ‘ukulele.
