Dear Members and Friends of JASH,

Music is a Cultural Bridge. The language of music is universal. Collaborative musical projects can bridge political, ethnic, and religious divides. In today’s update we’d like to feature two individuals and an organization who embody “being the bridge” through music.
The first video features JASH supporter Ms. Anju Madoka. Anju, who is currently in Japan, shares her rendition of Hawai`i Aloha. Many of you have had the pleasure of seeing her perform during her stay in Hawaii. She sends a special message to all us. “Thank you for watching my video! To everyone in the world. Please stay safe and stay strong. I’m looking forward to meeting YOU somewhere in this world. みなさんに会える日を楽しみにしています！ Instagram https://...”
Next up is Mr. Rich Kiyabu performing Umi No Koe. Rich plays an active role as a NexGen Advisory Board Member and is very involved as a volunteer for our Educational Programs. He also assists JASH with many of our audio needs through his business Iris Elements.
Lastly, we’d like to share this inspirational performance by the students of Ohana Arts, a non-profit performing arts organization whose mission is to cultivate an international family in the Pacific by promoting world friendship and peace through the universal language of the arts. Enjoy You Raise Me Up performed by the Ohana Arts young performers.
Stay Safe. Stay Healthy.
