In collaboration with Maori cultural artist Sam Mangakahia, Kala presents “The Voyage Collection”— 3 unique pieces of native Maori artwork. Sam has been telling stories through his art for 13 years and has created over 450 custom art pieces that each have a story. Each of the 3 designs/stories focus on specific human experiences we all share in common — Unity, Courage and Guidance— designed with natural elements that speak powerfully to these experiences. The artwork is laser-etched on mahogany and each ukulele comes with a personalized Voyage Collection gig bag, and story card hang tag telling the unique message of each piece of art.
Each of the three designs in the series come in concert and tenor sizes.
