The HI Now Live music series continues Friday, February 15, 2019 with Maui-native Kamaka Camarillo at Shirokiya Japan Village Walk.
Camarillo was born into a family of talented musicians and singers and first learned to play an instrument in his fathers ‘ukulele class when he was in the fourth grade. By the end of high school, Camarillo began singing in front of live audiences. His passion for music grew even more as a student at the University of Hawaii at Manoa where he received his bachelor’s degree in Music Education.
Camarillo now teaches guitar, ‘ukulele, and Polynesian music at Kaiser High School, but you can still find him performing alongside his brother.
In 2018, Camarillo’s hit single “E Pi’i Mai” — a Bruno Mars cover in Hawaiian written by Kawika — went viral and can be heard playing on Hawaii’s local radio stations.

About Jams World & Surf Line Hawaii
Founder Dave Rochlen grew up at the beach in Santa Monica, California. He was a lifeguard, surfer, dirt bike rider and paddle board racer who enjoyed the carefree Southern California lifestyle. He visited Hawaii and met native Hawaiian surfer girl Keanuenue Ka’eo, whom he married in 1953. He appeared on the cover of LIFE Magazine in 1949 as an icon for this new beach lifestyle, and again in 1954 in underwater scuba gear as the stuntman for Disney’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Dave later opened a surfboard shop called Surf Line Hawaii on Kona Street in Honolulu. Inspired by a group of Russians in their pajamas on the cover of Life Magazine, Dave asked his wife to cut a pair of Hawaiian print pajama pants into shorts for surfing. JAMS, short for pajamas, was born.
