Product Description

I hope you enjoy this Hawaiian collaboration which was recorded in Hawaii, on the island of Kaua’i, California and Northumberland, UK. Here’s the story ……

For over 20 years Mark Riley, a Californian by birth, has come to appreciate and embrace the life, culture and sounds of the Hawaiian nation. In order to honour the people and respect the friends and place he now calls home, this recording has involved cultural expressions, natural soundscapes and Hawaiian musicians to help tell Mark’s unfolding story of journeying with God on the island of Kaua’i as well as internationally.
