Kanikapila - Lets Play Music

KAMALAMALAMA

Joe, George, and Terry Kamalamalama make up the sensational group known as Kamalamalama. These three brothers having played together a life time, have developed a unique musical footprint their audiences have come to know as the "KAMALAMALAMA SOUND". These Hawaiians emulate the very word aloha with every sweet sound they share, a rare quality imitated by many, achieved by few. They have entertained audiences throughout Hawai`i, Japan, and the Mainland, combining strong vocal blends, outstanding instrumental capabilities, and their pure enjoyment of what they do best.....make beautiful music!

With the release of their long awaited CD, "THE DAYS OF OUR YOUTH" in early 1996, the musical community is anxiously awaiting what they believe to be a long overdue effort. Showcasing their great versatility, "THE DAYS OF OUR YOUTH" features selections of Hawaiian, pop, contemporary, traditional, and country sounds. Their respected talents have helped shape the magical music industry in Hawai`i for years, and through what comes so naturally to them, strengthen and preserve for generations to come, the very lifeline of Hawai`i......true aloha!

On stage, the overwhelming professionalism they bring to their audiences is second only to their exciting personalities, and excellent stage presence. Their audiences always find themselves a part of the show, whether by clapping their hands, singing along, or enjoying a dance....the longest side effect facing their audiences.......the inability to wipe the smiles from their faces! They are true showmen!

All that Hawai`i was, is or will be, is reflected in the wonderful sounds of
