Hokumoanalani, our buoy off the coast of Honuaula, is working well these days. We are now turning our attention to an important event on Maui - for those of you who love the songs of the whales, and seek a deeper understanding of their world. David Rothenberg, author of Why Birds Sing......also a great musician himself.....has just completed another book: The Thousand Mile Song - Whale Music in a Sea of Sound. David will be perfoming a benefit concert for The Whalesong Project on March 19 at The Studio Maui, 8:00 pm. All proceeds will help us to maintain Hokumoanalani and other vital operations. We are a volunteer organization, pay no rent or salaries, so help is appreciated in keeping this relatively expensive operation alive. Thank you, David! Keaolani will open for David with Hawaiian Music and Hula, and the event will end with a "dance jam" to live whale songs accompanied by David and surprise human guest musicians. I hope to see many of you there! Thanks for listening!
