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

I cannot more enthusiastically recommend Pulama. Their beautiful performance during and just-after our wedding ceremony set the perfect tempo and mood for the event. Composed/experienced professionals, Pulama performed flawlessly even when faced with playing much longer than expected and needing to adapt to the other (multiple!) limitations of our venue. Pulama was key in helping us incorporate music that had personal meaning to us, even offering to learn/adapt new music for us. I knew we had picked the perfect group when a guest approached me afterwards (an experienced musician) and said, "I've heard a lot of hawaiian bands, but they're VERY GOOD!"Sent on 10/31/2013

Jim and Pulama went above and beyond. They came to the venue a couple weeks before the big day just to get familiar with the area, demo different songs to see which ones we wanted for our wedding, they even added/learned new songs to their set because they had sentimental value to us. These guys came to the rehearsal and practiced the timing of the music with the ceremony and first dance. Their professionalism is the best I've ever seen. The quality of their music is amazing. They had us crying with the purity of the vocals and instruments, they set the exact romantic under the sea mood we wanted. They made all our guests feel like they were on the islands, one of our dear friends whose actually Hawaiian royalty said he felt like he was home. We can't thank you guys enough! You truly made our wedding unique and amazing and filled with so much love!! mahalo nui loa :)Sent on 11/06/2013
