Pihana...the skillful gathering of life's experiences, the accumulation of desires and dreams, and the realization of our on-going commitment to honor our 'aina, kupuna and 'ohana.
It has been my unique privilege to observe and experience the remarkable ancestral gifts bestowed upon this young, strong, and vibrant Hawaiian woman- a Kumu Hula who skillfully weaves ancient tradition into the modern fabric of her daily life. Napua strives for pihana in everything that she does and in doing so, inspires everyone around her to do the same.
Such is the power and the promise of pihana.

"Mohalu – to be at ease, comfortable, at liberty. As our lives contain many layers, the same is for Mohalu. Mohalu is also the 12th night of the lunar cycle, an eve where planting flowers would be ideal, as these blooms would grow as full and as perfect as the moon on this night. The mana’o (idea or thought) behind Mohalu represent what this sophomore project is for me.
This song selection unfolds to reveal different petals, if you will, of my life. My own mele (songs) are attempts to communicate my inner most feelings in hopes that there are others who can identify with my struggles and my joys."
"Musically gifted, well blended, and pleasing to the ear, three voices, one sound bring together the warmth of the sun..."Na Leo Pilimehana" known today simply as, NA LEO! In a first time effort of a Hawaiian and Hapa Haole recording, these three native beauties now entreat us, the listener, to exquisite vocal blends and rich harmonies.
The songs were composed by natives of the soil, of incidents in their lives, making this musical presentation, Hawaiian. The singer's excellent harmonies shared with the listener, extends their natural warmth.
From the definite up beat rendition of "Don McDiarmid's "Do the Hula", to John "Squeeze" Kamana's enchanting "Pua Mae'ole", this, is all hula. Add to the collection several new compositions and you have a winner!
Then if that's not enough add the Kahauanu Lake and Maddy Lam composition, "Misty Rains and Lehua", with the sophisticated ukulele playing and chord progressions of Walter Kawai'ae'a (Kahauanu Lake's hanai son), creating a beautiful blend with soloist, Lehua Kalima.
So if you're just listening or wanting to hula; Eo e Hawai'i....E Hula Mai Kakou!" -Kahaunau LakeLearn More

Rising in Love is classic Lehua. Original, rich in romance and supported by an amazing band featuring Shawn Pimental on guitar & drums, Michael Grande on keyboards & piano, Imua Garza on electric & acoustic guitar, Randy Aloya on bass, Kaleo del Sol on guitar & vocals, Jay Dee Mannes on pedal steel, Michael Paulo on - saxophone and Jon Porlas on percussion. While still performing as a vital part of Na Leo, Lehua Kalima spreads her wings releasing this much-demanded solo CD debut.
Lehua’s talent extends beyond the sultry tone it lends to the group’s sound and her lyrics have been award winning and memorable. Prevailing with three Na- Ho- ku- Hanohano Awards for Best Song of the Year in 1996 for “Flying With Angels,” in 1999 for “Rest of Your Life” and in 2001 for “Saving Forever,” Lehua thrives in an unmatched category as a lyricist.
While at Kamehameha Schools, Lehua Kalima joined with two good friends, Nalani Choy and Angela Morales to form Na Leo Pilimehana. In their senior year, they won a huge radio competition in Honolulu, Brown Bags to Stardom, playing in front of thousands at the Waikiki Shell. Nineteen albums and 20 Na Hoku Hanohano awards later, they continue to record and perform throughout the world.

In a culture that honors the legacies of the past, this Hawaiian trio of talented musicians pays homage to their roots while creating a unique and progressive sound that leaves their mark in contemporary Hawaiian music.
This worldview is the essence of Hiikua’s music, which is either composed or performed by Kalehua Krug, Kamuela Kimokeo and Blake Leoki-Haili. The group’s name derives from the Hawaiian word that literally means “to carry on one’s back.” Hi`ikua accepts this responsibility and intends with each song to achieve that goal: to speak of their history in words and music; to enjoy each moment of that expression, and in sharing this with you, to hope that their message will find its way into the future.
The music on Aia I Hi`ialo reflects the fond memories of Hi`ikua’s parents and grandparents, the things that they taught, and the messages that they shared. These memories are often the source of inspiration for mele that are written to help remember important life lessons. Learn More
Dance is universal. Regardless of what language or culture you call your own, if you witness hula, you always identify it with Hawai‘i. This small speck of land, in the biggest ocean on Earth, connects Hawai‘i with the world and often that connection is through hula. We are not confined to dance hula with just our feet. What brings hula to life is that the hands as well as the music, tell the story of the people of Hawai‘i. The music resonates from our hearts and souls and comes to life with hula.Learn More

On the heels of Mailani’s self-titled debut solo album, which garnered her the prestigious “Female Vocalist of the Year” Award, comes her brand new CD entitled `Aina. (English translation: Earth, land) With her feet well planted in the “‘aina,” this brave artist continues to challenge herself with each project. Mailani is originally from the very successful, award-winning group, Keahiwai, and the rocking trio, Mighty J. Her first CD proved that she had the ability to succeed as a solo artist. Her sophomore album ‘Aina gives us much more. ‘Aina includes some of the expected contemporary swagger which her fans and radio will love, but there is also something really surprising here that takes Mailani to a whole new level as an artist. Her delivery of some traditional Hawaiian pieces will impress and delight anyone who loves Hawaiian music. Here is a modern Hawaiian woman who knows how to entertain and have fun and here too is a Hawaiian woman with the depth and respect for the generations that came before her. ‘Aina is both gorgeous and entertaining. Another big step forward from an artist that continues to “Wow.”

A ground breaking collaboration between Hawaii's top selling female vocalist Amy Hanaialii and top performers/composers Jeff Peterson, Cyril Pahinui, Dennis Kamakahi, Sonny Lim and Chino Montero in the slack key guitar tradition.
One of the wonderful things about music is its ability to bring people together to share a connection that reaches beyond borders and boundaries. Music can immediately bond souls and create common ground. What happens when kindred spirits who share a deep respect for each other and Hawaiian culture come together to share their music in collaboration? We believe this recording is a great example of just this – creativity, camaraderie, spontaneity, passion, joy, laughter, gratitude, and above all aloha. We hope this recording is as much a joy to listen to, as it was to create.Learn More
