Pumana jams Hawaiian music!
Pumana is dedicated to performing traditional Hawaiian music and sharing Hawaiian culture.
Emerging from a warehouse in South Central Los Angeles, Matthew, Ray and Mark started performing Hawaiian music many years ago as the band known as Pohaku. We reunited and now perform as “Pumana.” Our music merges traditional Hawaiian songs with classic island rhythms.
“Pumana” is Matthew on lead vocals, Ray on guitar and vocals, and Mark on ukulele, percussion and vocals, with David on the drums and Sam on the bass.
What does the word “Pumana” mean? In the Hawaiian dictionary, "Pu" is defined as a musical instrument such as a conch shell or a wind instrument. "Mana" is defined as a supernatural or divine power.
The name “Pumana” is respectfully derived from the spiritual combination of these two Hawaiian words to mean “a musical instrument from heaven creating music that spreads the sharing of Aloha throughout the world.”
Pumana wishes you peace and love and all the best in 2013!
