ABOUT THIS VIDEO:
40 years after this timeless classic was composed by a young Hawaiian in High School, we invited 1,000 youth, artists & collaborators across 4 islands to pull together their time, mana & resources - to record & film this song, live on location @ 29 scenes, each with its own story.
This video was produced to spread the message of aloha aina and raise awareness and support for the Mana Mele Project, where youth learn their ABCʻs - Academics, Business & Culture, through music, engineering, and video production.
ABOUT THIS VIDEO:
Mana Maoli & Playing for Change present “Island Style - ‘Oiwi E” featuring Hawaii’s top ʻMana Mele Collectiveʻ artists across many genres and 1,000 Hawaiian Charter School youth in one epic video, recorded live across 15 locations. This medley was produced to honor 2 families, and raise awareness and support for the Mana Mele Project, where youth learn their ABCʻs - Academics, Business & Culture, through music, engineering, and video production.
ABOUT THE SONGS:
“Island Style” is dedicated to the Cruz ʻohana, who lost their oldest brother Ernie Cruz, Jr and their youngest brother Guy Cruz, 2 days apart, just months after losing their father, Ernie Cruz Sr.
