The KALENA Story
Kalena brings a fresh and fun feeling to the traditional music store, reflecting the beauty of the islands and its people. The Kalena brand was founded in 2016 by Hawaii performing artist and teacher Anthony Appolito. The first Kalena retail store opened in Kapolei, Hawaii in 2019. Anthony has played ukulele since he was a kid and was trained by some of the best guitar instructors, including Lisa Smith who trained under Pepe Romero, Ozzie Kotani who studied Slack Key under Master Sonny Chillingworth, etc. Inspired by many other amazing musicians, he performed and taught solo guitar around the world for over 15 years where he built a network with material suppliers and factories and met his wife Karen who also teaches ukulele, piano and guitar. Kalena is a store for everyone who loves music and for those who appreciate high quality & affordable instruments, amazing accessories, musical toys, and decorations, at unbeatable low prices! Kalena brand products are designed by professional musicians who understand what quality means to you! Each product goes through a strict QC test on site by a qualified technician, checking every stage of production.
