NĀ LEO PILIMEHANA SHARES AWARD-WINNING SOUND
Hawaii’s top female group performs at the Waikoloa Bowl Friday, April 1st
KOHALA COAST, Hawaii-the Big Island — Waikoloa Beach Resort and Queens’ MarketPlace announce a memorable one-night only performance by 22-time Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award winners Nā Leo Pilimehana, Friday, April 1, 2011 under the stars at Waikoloa Bowl.
“Voices blending together with warmth” is the story behind the name of the #1 female Hawaiian music group in the world. Nā Leo Pilimehana—Nalani Choy, Lehua Kalima Heine and Angela Morales—performed as high school seniors in 1984’s “Brown Bags to Stardom” and ignited music charts with hit original song “Local Boys,” which is still the best-selling single in Hawaii’s history.
They’ve since appeared worldwide, breaking down walls and crossing the line between “Hawaiian” and adult contemporary music, playing the House of Blues in Los Angeles and Hollywood. Busy moms with their own record label, Nā Leo Pilimehana released their 25th Anniversary Collection in 2009 and continue to blend their warm and beautiful voices as they create new music for today’s audiences.

Doors open at 6:00 p.m. and the concert begins at 7:00 p.m. Low beach chairs, blankets and mats are recommended for lawn seating. No coolers please.
