Thank you for this post Inda.
I have been to Hawaii many times and I love the gentle sound of the ukulele, but I was not quite sure where it originated either.
It is wonderful that the Kamaka family still carries on the tradition of making good quality musical instruments.
The guiding philosophy at Kamaka Hawaii has always been the candid, but sensible advice handed down from Sam Sr. to sons:
"If you make instruments and use the family name, don't make junk."
