She has performed on the stages of Madison Square Garden, the Sydney Opera House’s Forecourt, and is a three-time guest artist at The White House.
Today, with a global fanbase and a thriving music career, Fuga’s music is dedicated to inspiring positive social change, rooted in perseverance and hope. She is fiercely committed to bringing the evocative voice of the Hawaiian people to global audience. Fuga recently released her second full-length album, “Rain On Sunday” through Brushfire Records.
“I’m really excited to perform music from my new album for Kahilu Theater. I love being in Waimea, I have some roots there on the Spencer side of my family. There’s always such a warm welcome from the community and I look forward to that aloha whenever I roll through,” she said.
