Gilbert Emata

A professionally trained piano player since the age of six, Gilbert Emata relocated to Maui from the greater San Francisco Bay Area in 1993. With his love of so many different genres of music, Maui has been the perfect melting pot of musicians he has worked with over the last 30 years including Ekolu, Willie K, Amy Hanaiali’i Gilliom, and Asian Blend.  Currently, Gilbert is working convention venues with The Drivers and performs every Saturday night at Kula Lodge with Gina Martinelli.
