Sean Na`auao's new album, Lehua Beauty, features 11 tracks that showcase Sean's diversity as a vocal artist.
Embracing his Hawaiian heritage, Sean Na`auao has always connected his music back to his kupuna (his ancestors and elders). The title track of this album, “Lehua Beauty”, as well as “He Aloha `Oe, E Ka Lehua E” were composed by Kumu Frank Kawaikapuokalani Hewett. Sean collaborated with Kumu Frank previously in 2001 and 2002, and received Na Hoku Hanohano Awards for his renditions of Frank's compositions. “He Aloha `Oe, E Ka Lehua E” is sure to become a hula classic, and features the vocals of the 2015 Na Hoku Hanohano Most Promising Artists of the Year, Hu`ewa, to which Sean’s son, Kupu`ehu is a member.
