Hāwane just released her new Single „Directions“.
Directions, a prayer song written by Nahko Bear, calls upon the four directions
to ground in the offering, ceremony, and exchange of music as medicine for the people. Hāwane weaves the Hawaiian language of her ancestors into this song, honoring the connection with Wākea (Sky Father) and Papahānaumoku (Earth Mother) and sending this prayer of peace and aloha to the hearts of all people, sacred lands, mountains, and waterways.
