Lina Girl (Naipo) Langi began her career as a vocalist, songwriter and musician in the 4-piece group, Nā Waiho’olu’u o ke Ānuenue (The Colors of the Rainbow). Nā Wai was started by four friends in 1988 while they attended the Kamehemeha Schools. After entering a statewide high school talent competition and placing third, they were discovered by local record producer, John Kahale Chang. They recorded their first record when three of the band members were still in high school.

In 2007, this fun and versatile wahine joined the Kanile’a stable of artists with her first instrument: a beautiful K-3 Tenor Premium. She can often be seen playing, singing and instructing alongside her husband and eternal companion Bruddah Sam Langi.

Lina Girl moved on to become one of Hawai’i’s top radio personalities with KCCN FM100 and Hawaiian 105 KINE FM in Honolulu. She has become a household name in the Islands and her voice can be instantly recognized anywhere!

In January 2015, Lina Girl took on another role as the Director of Sales and Marketing with Kanile’a ‘Ukulele. She still continues to play music, sing, emcee and dance hula while adding her years of marketing and sales experience to our ‘ohana. We are happy to have Lina Girl, not only as a Kanile’a artist but also as a part of our Kanile’a Krew.
