First time I saw him perform live on stage was on last year at TIUF (Thai International Ukulele Festival) in Bangkok. Humble, Skillful and Entertaining! These three words enough to elaborate about this guy! And now he will be coming over to perform live in Kuala Lumpur on his Ukulele Redefine Asia Tour. Concert will be held on 21st June 2014 at Matic@KL of Jalan Ampang, Kuala Lumpur. Prior concert, there will have ukulele workshop session conducted by himself. This a great chance for everyone to see and learn ukulele techniques from him. You may not able to get this chance come again! Don't miss it! Guarantee no regret! Everyone who played the ukulele should come to the event. Concert event is fully organized by Ukulele Malaya, any ticket purchase can get through online purchase by clicking HERE or come to Ukulele Malaya showroom to purchase pass entry.

Kalei Gamiao - Biography
Wielding his ukulele like it will one day rule the world, Kalei Gamiao mesmerizes audiences with imaginative musicality and flawless execution. This soft spoken young man can silence a talkative crowd as he delicately picks or fires away at his simple four-stringed instrument. Captivated by his skill and the ukulele’s versatility, expressions like “I was floored” or “he had me at the edge of my seat” are familiar responses from first time listeners who eagerly fall under the power of Kalei’s ukulele. His ability to create sounds that are incredibly rich and full are even more amazing when you consider he only has two octaves to work with. Award winning ukulele master, Herb Ohta, Jr., summed it up best when he declared, “Kalei's music and ukulele prowess will take the ukulele to new heights!”
