One Rhythm

one-rhythmAn up-and-coming local band from Hilo, Hawaiʻi, One Rhythm stars five talented young musicians: William Kauhane, Moses Ahuna, Joel Thatcher, Elias Hayes and Kenan-Micah Gebin. The band burst onto the music scene as winners of the statewide 2014 Brown Bags to Stardom contest.

Inspired by the on-going protests against the building of the Thirty Meter Telescope on Mauna Kea on their home island, Stand Up and Rise follows the tradition of Native Hawaiian tradition of mele kūʻē, political songs of resistance.

Pūpū A ʻO ʻEwa is pleased to share the original music video, Stand Up and Rise, by One Rhythm and dedicated in support of the protectors of Mauna Kea.
