Live Music by Kamaka Camarillo
Kamaka Camarillo is a native from the south side of Kīhei, Maui, named after the Kamaka ‘ukulele. He was brought up in a musical family. His grandfather, George Camarillo Sr. was a music teacher, and so was his father, Rama Camarillo. His musical roots also extend from his mother, Cora’s side of the family. Joseph Nohea Kalima Sr., composer of the song “Hilo Hula”, is Kamaka’s great-grandfather and his aunty, Lehua Kalima, is a singer of the Nā Hōkū Hanohano award-winning group, Nā Leo Pilimehana.
Kamaka first learned ‘ukulele in the 4th grade during a summer ʻukulele program taught by his father. It was also that year that he began learning piano as well. At the end of high school, Kamaka started working on singing. Luckily his father, Rama, had a weekly gig on Monday evenings in Kīhei at the Maui Coast Poolside Cafe, that allowed Kamaka to practice his singing in front of live audiences and fine tune his instrumental skills.
Venturing off into college, Kamaka continued to practice singing, and also picked up the guitar. As a result of not wanting to let his younger brother get better than him on more than one instrument, Kamaka began learning guitar during his sophomore year of college.
At the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa, Kamaka obtained his bachelor’s degree in music education. He was classically trained in guitar under well-accomplished professors, Peter Frary and Ian O’Sullivan. It was here in college, where he really honed his musical skills. He began playing in a reggae band called the Virtue, earned his first gig with his brother Kala‘e at the Imua Lounge, and did his first solo gigs and venues like Rock Bottom and Breakers in Haleʻiwa.
Today, Kamaka is a guitar, ‘ukulele, and Polynesian music teacher at Kaiser High School. He also plays weekly music gigs with his brother under the group name The Camarillo Brothers at the Chart House Waikīkī on Mondays, and at the Hula Grill Waikīkī on Fridays. He has performed at venues all over the island of Oʻahu, some of which include, Duke’s Waikīkī, Lulu’s Waikīkī, Eating House 1849 Waikīkī, and the Amuse Wine Bar. He is currently working on an album that will hopefully be released by the end of 2018.
