I wasn't sure where to put this, so it went her.

How is Kalei Gamiao's name pronounced?

I have never heard his name spoken out loud.

Thanks

Also, the stress is on the second syllable: Ka-lay'
Not exactly sure about his surname but I think it's on the last syllable: Gam-ee-ow'

What is more important is listening to him play. This is an impromptu jam between him and Corey Fujimoto at the end of a day at HMS.

Two of the best right there! Loved the interaction between them. Thanks for posting.

I have Corey's ukelele CD, Fables. One of my faves. Kalei played my Kala in an HMS video before I bought it. I am SO not worthy, LOL!

The pronunciation of Hawaiian is pretty much identical to Japanese, same sounding vowels... :shaka:

Corey told me the next day that this was only the second time they played the song together. Kalei had only heard the song for the first time a week earlier.

Thank you for posting this. I am dyslexic and could never figure out how to pronounce his name. I appreciate you asking

Thanks, I'm glad I know how to say his name now.
When I pray to all the gods, I will have it right!
