Maybe because he grew up on Molokai, Sashamon’s music brings a unique peaceful vibe to the island music scene.
The public first heard Sashamon’s blend of Reggae and Hawaiian music on a homemade demo, which spread worldwide
with the support of top Kauai professional surfers. The popular underground CD One Day Maybe contained chart
topping songs “Japanese Squeeze” and “Necta” (Butterfly) became instant Hawaiian hits and have spread throughout
the world, wherever Hawaiian music is played, including Brazil, Japan, London, Germany, France, Tahiti, and Israel.
Sashamon’s musical background is deep rooted with the ukulele strumming Kupuna, or respected elders on Molokai,
and this musical upbringing shines authentic in Sashamon’s own relationship to music. Not only is Sashamon’s
unique musical blend of roots reggae, Dub and Jawaiian addictively refreshing, his themes and soothing Hawaiian
temperament have calmed the Line Up office for years in deadline time. Sashamon’s smooth-grooved Molokai vibe,
powerfully delicate voice and feel-good rhythms reverberate in the better senses of the listener—the more peaceful
senses. “I think the best music comes from happiness, and it transfers into the music,” explained Sashamon.
