Pulama is the vocal/guitar duo of Jim Romano and Paula Kauapalauki Rudman. They have been singing and playing the music of Hawai'i in the San Francisco Bay Area since 2003.
Jim and Paula present their own arrangements of traditional and modern Hawaiian mele, hapa-haole songs and original compositions, arranged with artistry and performed with aloha.
Paula’s warm, lyrical vocals perfectly complement Jim’s scintillating slack-key guitar and rough-smooth tenor. “We are often told that it is rare to find two voices that blend so beautifully.”
Pulama's evocative blend of close, pure vocal harmonies and slack-key guitar has been described as "like velvet for my heart."
Be transported to the Islands by the beautiful melodies of Hawaii and the music of Pulama.
