I returned from working with sound designer Christopher Hedge in California. Chris and I were working on the score for a new film by Director Dr. Thomas Vendetti. It's a film called "Tibetan Illusion Destroyer". I recorded most of the score in Kathmandu in November of last year, working with some excellent musicians there. Its been a wonderful musical journey and I've learned so much, especially about the beautiful tonality of their native instruments. The film should be released this year. I'll be sure and let our friends know when the release date gets close.

When we got back to Hawai'i, Moana and I flew immediately to Kona on Hawaii Island to host the young people of Kupu - Hawai'i Youth Conservation Corps as they volunteered their services for Aloha Kuamo'o 'Aina, our non-profit tasked with the protection and preservation of Hawai'i's sacred Battlefield of Kuamo'o.

Kupu is centered on environmental conservation, restoration, education, and cultural awareness. HYCC gives individuals the opportunity to work outdoors with environmental agencies across Hawai`i and learn the principles of natural resource stewardship, while gaining valuable experience, knowledge, and skills that assist them in continuing their life pursuits.

It was an honor to share aloha with these young people as they worked tirelessly to malama our beautiful 'aina.  Aloha Kuamo'o 'Aina's Program Director - Kamuela Meheula did exceptional work in organizing and coordinating Kupu's visit. I am deeply grateful and honored to work with both her and Kupu. The photo above shows a few of the group planting in a newly protected area for the propagation of native species.
