The Wrath of Pele! Konabob is hamming it up in front of a photograph of a volcanic eruption picture at the Jaggar Museum, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. This is one of the most interesting stops along the Chain of Craters Road, which circles active Kilauea caldera.

"HELP NEPAL REBUILD": NEPALESE AND INDIAN MUSIC FUNDRAISER CONCERT - WAIMEA
With Parashuram Bhandari on sarangi, Daniel Paul on tabla, and Babette Ackin on tanpura, at 7 PM at Kahilu Theatre, Waimea. $20 at door (please give more if you can). Parashuram Bhandari hails from the former kingdom of Nepal. He is a master of the sarangi, an instrument whose name means "hundred colors," with a cello-like timbre, bowed on three melody strings with thirty-six sympathetic strings underneath, giving it a haunting cello-like resonance and bright reverberating echo. His music ranges from the wildly exuberant to hauntingly delicate, presented with the rhythmic power that is his signature. Daniel Paul is a graduate from the Ali Akbar College of Music, a Fulbright India Scholar and long-time tabla accompanist to Grammy nominee Jai Uttal. Together, in a time honored tradition whose roots go back thousands of years, Parashuram and Daniel will present an evening meditation of melodies and rhythms from Nepal and India. Babette Ackin will provide the drone background for the music on the tanpura. Proceeds will go to The Nepal Foundation and Society of Nepalese in Hawaii, both 501c3 Non-Profit organizations. To learn more about the featured musicians, visit www.parashurambhandari.com and www.tabladaniel.com. For more info, email icmchawaii@gmail.com or visit www.indianclassicalmusichawaii.com.
