Aisha Kadomatsu

Host, Bridging the Gap

Aisha was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaiʻi. She developed an ear for music at a young age, listening to her parents' playlist of Japanese and Western tunes. She also started to play the violin at age nine.


In 2014, Aisha attended the University of Hawaii at Mānoa, where she continued to pursue music, playing in various orchestras and ensembles. She also joined KTUH, UH Mānoa’s college radio station, where she hosted a morning music show featuring a blend of jazz, folk, indie rock, rare groove soul, and more.


Now, the co-host of Bridging the Gap on Thursday nights, Aisha shares a diverse collection of songs in hopes to widen music appreciation for all listeners.

Tonight on Bridging the Gap, we will be featuring songs from some of my favorite singer-songwriters. Also weaving in some indie folk and indie rock.

Tonight on Bridging the Gap, we will be starting off with a blend of neo-soul and beat-driven music. We will also introduce more experimental sounds as the show goes on. A perfect playlist for winding down after a long day... Or if you're a night owl, a great way to get the day started.
