Molokai with Dennis Kamakahi and Stephen Inglis | Hana Hou! Magazine

Last year I traveled to the island of Molokai for Hana Hou! Magazine with Slack Key Masters Dennis Kamakahi and Stephen Inglis, as they visited the isolated village of Kalaupapa and played a concert of their new musical compilation about Kalaupapa for some of the last remaining leprosy patients and residents. Then we headed up to topside molokai, they played a concert at the Hotel Molokai and we drove around beautiful sites of the island and visited old friends. It was a wonderful time, I'll be sharing about the trip in a few posts, check back to see photos from Kalaupapa and to see the final spread in Hana Hou! the Hawaiian Airlines Magazine.
