Whose down for a drive to the North Shore? E kakoʻo mai! ...
We are excited to announce our Mana Mele Event Series, featuring artists of the Mana Mele Collective. We humbly request your support in taking a second to like and share...
The 1st 2 events are on 9/30 and 10/15, in partnership with Surfer, The Bar. The 3rd event is on 11/19 at Gordon Biersch - Honolulu. Save the dates!
Hereʻs the backstory and motivation for our event and EP series...
Our last major grant ends on 9/29. Entering the Mana Mele Projectʻs 4th year (and Mana Maoliʻs 16th), we only have Fall semester covered for our year-long classes @ 11 partner schools on Oʻahu and Kauaʻi. Online and in person, we hope to raise enough donations to allow these classes to run through the school year.
Fri 9/30: Paula Fuga 9-10 PM and Joshua Tatofi featuring Irie Love from 10:30 PM - Midnight.
Sat 10/15: Natural Vibrations and special guests!
Sat 11/19: JAH Maoli, Irie Love, LION FIYAH, Kamakakēhau Fernandez, Pomaika'i Lyman and more!
Mahalo to our Mana Mele Collective artists for all past and future support of our keiki! #ManaMaoli #ManaMele

Sending much aloha and pule to the Cruz ʻohana ...
Guy Cruz moved on to the next realm last night.
We send our aloha, pule, and condolences to his ʻohana and loved ones.
All who have heard Guyʻs voice, lyrics and music even once, would agree it is unforgettable.
So was his unconditional aloha - always giving when he had next to nothing, always willing to
undergo great sacrifice for friends.
Guy played important and pivotal roles for Mana Maoli in the early years, and always immediately
said yes to any invite to kōkua ever since. He will be greatly missed, and we are forever grateful.
This song is "Forgive I" by Guy Cruz and Kevin Chang of Kupaʻaina.
