This music video is part of a multimedia art piece by Yvonne Yarber using music of Apokolani. Like many of their songs,this is a way to process problematic issues in our society. In this case itʻs the homeless issue that was not part of the fabric of Hawai‘i when we were growing up. The photographic and music video was purchased as part of the Hawai‘i State Foundation of the Arts. Keoki Apokolani on guitar; Paul Lindbergh on tenor sax; Jon Hawes upright bass. 2018

Here we are unplugged with a new song thatʻs only a few hours old.

The community birthing of a song...the idea of this mele began in 2006 and forgotten until November 2017. Bring It! an "originals only" creative community venue is a great place to try out fresh new material and songs.  Keoki Apokolani Carter and Yvonne Yarber Carter at the Mike Luce Studio, Kahilu Theatre in Waimea, Hawai‘i Island. Check it out on their facebook. Bring It! Hawaii.
