Celebrating 100 years of Ukulele Legacy, Kamaka Ukulele artists Taimane Gardner and Kalei Gamiao are at the forefront of today’s ukulele revolution. Taimane, who picked up her first ukulele at the age of 5, is right at home finger-picking through Bach, or radically ripping through Led Zeppelin. Kalei, who didn’t start to play until a sports injury forced him to find a new hobby at the age of 13, creates sounds that are rich, full and keep listeners on the edge of their seats. Their tour is in recognition of the 100th anniversary of Kamaka Ukuleles.
