Aloha, Welcome,

Be transported to the Islands by the beautiful melodies and lyrics of Hawaii with the music of Pulama.

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.

Pulama'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 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 is available for Weddings, Parties and Special Events.

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!"
