Na Leo Pilimehana, which means the “voices blending together in warmth” is the most popular, most award-winning and biggest selling female Hawaiian group in the world. Na Leo, also known as Nalani Jenkins, Lehua Kalima and Angela Morales, have been performing together for over 30 years. They had their first hit as high school seniors in 1984 with their original song “Local Boys,” and put out their first hit album later that same year. Over the course of their career, they started their own record label, signed with Sony Music in 1996, released 24 CDs, and won 22 Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards. Na Leo owns 100% of their sound recordings and music production copyrights, something few, if any, Hawaiian artists have been able to accomplish.
In addition to their musical accomplishments, the ladies of Na Leo are also active in the community through volunteer work, service on the boards of numerous community groups and donation of time, resources and CDs to various charitable organizations. Na Leo also spends a significant amount of time mentoring Native Hawaiian individuals and businesses in the music industry.
