Los Angeles International Ukulele Festival Producer: Mitch Chang, Kala Koa Entertainment
My vision for the Los Angeles International Ukulele Festival is to always make it as easy as possible for families and ukulele fans of all ages, interest and ability levels to discover/rediscover the ukulele in a space where they will be supported and encouraged and for the festival to be a true community-based event. Born & raised in Hawaii and a graduate of the University of Hawaii music department, the ukulele was my very first instrument.
