Price: free

It's impressive enough that Paula Fuga's debut bundlesromantic R&B lyrics, roots reggae rhythms, and Hawaiian culture into a natural hybrid. "Nose Flute Dub" offers just what it promises, while "The Sun Will Rise" reaches even further with a proudly country guitar part. But best of all are Fuga's vocals, overcome with passion and soul in a way that can't be forced. When she sings, And no matter how I try, I can't resist the thought of you, the pain in her voice pierces through a softly strummed ukulele. At its best, this combination of upfront sincerity and unfettered talent results in pure magic. Fuga makes her first Bay Area appearance on Friday, Jan. 25 at Jupiter (2181 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley), backed by fellow Hawaiian act the Girlas. 8 p.m., free. JupiterBeer.com
