In early April the SWQ will be recording a new work commissioned for us by the City and County of Honolulu. The title of the work is Paka'a Lanakila!, and the composer is Jon Magnussen. The work includes narration (by Jon), and tells the story of a young Hawaiian boy named Paka'a who learns about the power of the wind.
