They are a group brought together by their love of music, high school friends sharing a common journey. They consider themselves local and organically-grown artists springing from the fertile district of Ka‘u. Most have now graduated high school and some soon to graduate but all possess talent rarely found outside that of professional musicians.

Striving to reach that perfect outcome as a local music group bringing musical respect to Ka‘u and the State of Hawaii. Come enjoy an evening of local music performed by One Journey – winners of the statewide Brown Bags Band Competition.

Lead vocals: Dillin Ballo and Eunice Longakit. Music by Kasey Camba, David Ramones, Kiana Pascubillo, Rigiel Goralli, James (Kimo) Tyson and Moses Espaniola III. Join One Journey, LIVE in concert at the Kilauea Visitor Center Auditorium.

Beware you may feel the urge to dance.

One Journey music CDs will be available the evening of the concert for purchase and autographs.

* Aug. 23 – “Kilauea’s March 2011 Kamoamoa fissure eruption: what happened and what’s next?”

On the afternoon of March 5, 2011, the floor of the Puu Oo eruptive vent on Kilauea’s east rift zone collapsed and the summit caldera began to deflate rapidly as magma was drawn into the east rift zone near Napau Crater.

A few hours later, lava began to erupt between Napau and Puu Oo, marking the start of the Kamoamoa fissure eruption. The eruptive fissure reached a length of about 2 km over the next several days, with activity jumping between different fissure segments and then gradually declining.

The eruption ceased on the night of March 9, and it was 17 days before lava again appeared on the surface of the volcano, filling the collapse crater at Puu Oo.

The Kamoamoa fissure eruption was spectacular and caused major changes in Kilauea’s 1983-present east rift zone eruption.

Join Hawaiian Volcano Observatory geophysicist Mike Poland for a discussion of this fascinating event. In addition to information about the eruption itself, Mike will describe activity that preceded formation of the fissure and Kilauea’s current status as the volcano continues to recover from the Kamoamoa eruptive event.

The $2 donation helps to support Park programs. Park entrance fees apply.

Program co-sponsored by Hawaii Natural History Association. For information, call (808)985-6011.
