HAWAII RECAP + 2 NEW MUSIC VIDEOS 

 

Dear Fam!
This past January & February Climbing Poetree joined forces with  Leah Song & Biko Casini of Rising Appalachia, and what a collaboration it was! We are immensely grateful for the magic and power of this journey, and getting to share our work with these 4 islands’ communities, and learn from the vast heritage of music, spirituality, medicine, farming, movements to resist GMO experimentation and militarization, and struggles for sovereignty and self-determination.

Here is a quick recap of our journey, scroll below for breathtaking photographs of the tour. We were also blessed enough to film two live recordings, on epic landscapes, out of the 5 collaborations that Leah Song, Biko Casini, Naima & I created while traveling together. Check those out and spread them far and wide!

With Eternal Gratitude,

Alixa & Naima

 

WE THANK THE HAWAIIAN PEOPLE WHO WELCOMED US  
INTO THEIR HOMES, INTO THEIR CYPHERS, ONTO THEIR LAND,

WE THANK THE ANCESTORS OF THESE MOUNTAINS AND OCEANS AND ALL THE SPIRITS WHO GUIDED OUR STEPS.

 

WE ARE GRATEFUL TO EVERYONE WHO HELPED BUILD THE STAGE, EVERYONE WHO SHARED THE STAGE, THOSE WHO FED US AND HOUSED US AND SHARED THEIR SECRET PLACES WITH US,  
AND THANK YOU TO  EVERYONE WHO CAME OUT AND SPREAD THE WORD. 

  

 

   EVERY PRESENTATION WAS A PRAYER, AN OUTCRY, A CLASSROOM

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE 
WHO HELPED MAKE THIS POSSIBLE.
