Introducing: Bula Akamu
Guess where one of the most talented musicians on our island spreads his magic several times per week? We are proud to be one of the locations that Bula Akamu blesses with his amazing voice. Soulful, passionate and with a voice spanning several octaves, Bula is at home in a variety of genres and especially when you experience him live, you will find that his enthusiasm and love for music is contagious! Bula graduated from the prestigious Berklee College of Music and has since released 2 albums “Innovation” and “Wahi Pana”.
Meet Bula and his music several times a week on the Body Glove Historical Dinner Cruise. Enjoy a local-style, made-from-scratch dinner buffet by our Chef Jason Lofland, amazing insights into the history of Kona and its southern coast shared by one of our historians Michaela or Kalei, and let the life music touch your heart and soul. Bula’s style embraces his Hawaiian roots, but reggae, pop and country melodies are also part of his repertoire. Feel free to put in a song request when you are on the cruise. He’ll be happy to perform it for you!
