This is my first contribution to the Flying Moleskins Project. Edward Burton chose his theme to be music. When my daughter danced hula and Tahitian with the renown Na Hula 'O Moku'aina dance company for five years, I fell in love with the culture. Kumu Catherine Blakenship is a very talented teacher, singer and gifted choreographer. Her instruction for new dances always included a history and cultural lesson. This is my dedication for her work in preserving a beautiful art and culture.
Isreal Kamakawiwo'ole is a Hawaiian Icon. If you go to the Flying Moleskins Project webpage, you can listen to his rendition of the song "Over the Rainbow" which gained him National attention.
