We have Kalei on many of the sound samples here and at our website (The Ukulele Site). He’s also in a number of our podcasts you can find here and shares plenty of good info with customers at the shop 5 days a week (when he’s not on tour). Speaking of which, if you want to see where he’s going to be playing, or check out some of his fantastic albums, go to his website here – KaleiGamiao.com
We recorded this live at Happas, in Anaheim California when we were there for NAMM 2017 playing his cedar top deluxe Kamaka tenor.Back story on this uke, it’s one that Kalei sound sampled for the store and subsequently had to have. This is Kalei’s original Mach 4, quite an intense composition for solo ukulele if you ask me.
Another original instrumental from Kalei but this one we recorded purely acoustic and he’s playing his Kamaka signature tenor with a bearclaw spruce top and Brazilian rosewood sides and back.
Almost 5 years ago now but still a fun recording with Kalei utilizing a looping pedal. The loop on the ME-70 Boss pedal I believe.
Another solo looping. By this time, as you can see, Kalei is using the Digitech looper.
This recording was done with a combo of stereo acoustic mics and cutting in the pickup through the amps out. It showcases the technical prficiancy and emotion that Kalei plays with.
