Aloha Friday at Splash Bar with Kamaka Ukulele

May 8, 2017

Nothing says Aloha Friday in Hawaii like an ono (delicious) Hawaiian cocktail, live music and a little wala’au (talk story) with friends.

Starting May 12, every second Friday of the month Splash Bar at the Sheraton Princess Kaiulani Hotel will offer just that and more to help get you into the Aloha Friday spirit.

Aloha Friday at Splash Bar will offer special dishes and cocktails that highlight local flavors and ingredients.

Once a quarter, Aloha Friday at Splash Bar will also host exceptional guests from the community to share their story and contributions to Hawaii’s culture, arts, music and history.

And what better way to kick off the events than with the family whose work contributes to the vibrant Hawaiian music we hear up and down Waikiki Beach: The Kamaka’s of Kamaka Ukulele.

Founded in 1916 and celebrating a legacy of 100 years handcrafting Hawaii’s finest ukuleles, the Kamaka family and Hawaiian music are synonymous. Their beautifully constructed ukulele are as much a piece of art as they are a musical instrument.

Chris Kamaka, son of founder Samuel Kaialiilii Kamaka’s will lead the discussion and a collection of Kamaka ukuleles will be on display for viewing.
