Kamaka Artist

Ben Ahn

Ben Ahn is an `ukulele artist and vocalist from the island of Kaua`i, currently living in the San Francisco Bay area. He specializes in diversity, and you can expect just about every genre of music at one of his shows. Plus, he's kind of funny.
“My `ukulele journey started on my family's Kamaka, so the rich Koa wood tone is something that's been engraved on my heart and in my ears. For a short time in college, I went on an `ukulele experimentation adventure, trying instruments from dozens of different luthiers and manufacturers. That journey ended in 2008 when I was blessed with the custom Kamaka tenor that I still use today. The artistry and craftsmanship of Kamaka really has no rival.”
