Kamaka Artist

Brittni Paiva

Brittni Paiva is a multi-award winning ukulele instrumentalist from Hilo, Hawaii. She began her journey with piano lessons at the age of four. In the subsequent years, Brittni picked up the drums, bass, guitar as well as other instruments. When Brittni was 11, she began playing the ukulele, and that became her passion.

Now Brittni has produced multiple CDs, and many singles. One of Brittni's goals, when it comes to creating music with the ukulele, is to apply it to non traditional genres, and to play music that will enlighten people and make them smile. From pop, alternative, to EDM (Electronic Dance Music), Brittni transforms the ukulele and seeks to make it front and center. Brittni has also been amongst those who are noted as pioneered the looping technique when applied to the ukulele, as you can see in some of her YouTube videos.

When it comes to my instruments, quality is a really big thing. I've played hundreds of ukuleles in all shapes and sizes and none sounded so captivating as a Kamaka ukulele. The Kamaka family is always so kind and welcoming. Their love and passion is reflected in their instruments. I also like that they offer tours of their factory; you'll be able to see first-hand their traditions and craftsmanship, which were passed down through generations. I'm very proud and grateful to be playing a Kamaka ukulele."

As far as Brittni's future plans, she would like to build her own studio and help up and coming ukulele players get their first CD produced. Brittni is working towards performing at festivals like EDC (Electric Daisy Carnival), UMF (Ultra Music Festival) and similar events.
