A fun-filled musical journey exploring
Hawai''i''s natural history.
Hawai''i''s own Lava Jam Band is a group of educator-musicians devoted to creating playful ways to inform and promote awareness of the fragile beauty and unique diversity of life on planet earth, and most specifically, our own Hawaiian Islands. This lively foursome weaves a tasteful blend of science, history, legend and thought-provoking tips on caring for the ''aina (land) through a wonderful assortment of original songs. "In The Beginning," a song that musically describes Hawai''i''s geological origins, is also the name of the group''s debut CD. Other cuts include "Halema''uma''u," a catchy little ditty about Kilauea''s famous crater; "''Ohi''a," a sweet song of Volcano Goddess, Madame Pele''s first tree; "Lady Hapu''u," a rainforest hoe-down meeting of ferns; "''Olapa," a graceful hula for this native tree; "Trees/Moa Koa," a partnering of a famous poem with an upbeat plea for a native''s future; "Coconut Palm," listing its usefulness with a calypso rhythm; "Gooney," a lively tune sung by Mama Albatross and a chorus of kids; "Honu," a plaintive lament for the endangered sea turtle; "Put ''Opala In Its Place," some friendly advice on trash (''opala) containment; "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle," a reminder with a jazzy beat; and "Fly With The Rainbow," a song about connections.
Members of Lava Jam Band, who individually & collectively have performed in various venues on the Big Island and other locations, include Angie Libadisos Baker on ukulele; Dina Kageler on guitar; Sherri Thal on violin and percussion; and David Sierra on guitar, ukulele, mandolin and flute.
