Born and raised on the Big Island, 13 year old Kris Fuchigami began his musical journey with a beat up old ukulele in his hands and a strong desire to master that tiny little instrument.
2 years later Kris won the grand prize at the Hamakua Music Scholarship Competition on the Big Island where he competed against classical pianists, singers, drummers, and many other musicians.
Kris went on to perform at and headline ukulele festivals and has gained recognition throughout the world.
Kris's youtube videos have accumulated over one million views by fans all over the world.
Now, at the age of 25, Kris has released 4 CDs and has been privileged to perform with music greats such as Jake Shimabukuro, Mark Yamanaka, Yoza, Daniel Ho, Brittni Paiva, and many more!
My performance is very unique. I will take the audience on a journey that they have never been on before. I will show them what the ukulele is really capable of doing. I am also a Kamaka ukulele artist and we will be celebrating Kamaka's 100th year anniversary and I will be representing them on stage!
