Na Hoku Hanohano award winner Paula Fuga is joined by fellow winners Benny Uyetake, and Kevin Brown.
Organizers note that “exquisite vocals, powerful lyrics, and gorgeous melodies have earned Paula Fuga widespread critical praise and an incredibly dedicated fan base. Paula is a cultural ambassador, playing music for her Hawaiian culture and spreading the thoughtful and evocative voice of the Hawaiian people across the world. She has been likened to a Hawaiian Lauryn Hill, and has been embraced by a range of other inspiring artists like Jack Johnson, Jason Mraz, Ziggy Marley, and Nick Hexum of 311.”
“I use my talent as an instrument to help bring about positive social change within the islands and beyond,” says Fuga. “Instilling the Hawaiian culture in the generations to come and, generally, being a beacon of the meditative and healing powers of the Hawaiian people.”
