Lilikoi - Paula Fuga CD
Praised for her originality in song composition and ability to stir the deepest emotions with spellbinding and soulful vocals, Paula Fuga has established herself as one of Hawai’i’s most respected live performers.
At an early age, she faced the vulnerabilities of living homeless on the beach, seeing the destruction of drugs and violence. Despite having overcome such adversity quite successfully, she is living her career with much gratitude and humility. Fuga relentlessly strives to inspire youth across the world, sharing her story of perseverance and hope. She makes countless efforts to participate in various community projects focusing on protecting the environment and spreading the fundamental values of her native Hawaiian culture. Fuga is an artist on a mission and music is her vehicle.
Starting off as a poet, she bloomed into a songwriter when she began playing the ukulele in High School, studying under master instructor Roy Sakuma. Upon the release of her debut Album Lilikoi, Fuga was awarded the Na Hoku Hanohano Award for Most Promising Artist.
“Music is my first love. Love is my first language.” – Paula Fuga
