Article about Kamaka ukulele factory

 2005 07 17 Travel Art1A
The Honolulu-Star Bulleten has a short article about Kamaka ukuleles, the oldest surviving uke-factory in the world. They've been in business since 1916.

Made of resonant curly koa and crafted mostly by hearing-impaired employees whose sense of touch is attuned to the natural vibrations of the expensive wood, Kamaka ukuleles are not cheap and there's a long waiting list to buy one. With proper care, they last forever.
