One Note - One World

Hawaii's own Brother Noland and St. Louis jazz, funk and avant garde guitarist Kelvyn Bell aka "The Kelvynator" jam together on the classic Brazilian tune "One Note Samba". The two played the impromptu jam at a Pau Hana hosted for the artists and other P&B project participants on Tuesday evening at the University of Hawaii Hilo Campus Center.

That a man of Hawaiian descent born in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and a man of African descent born on the banks of the Mississippi River can sit down and instantly connect through a song written by a man of Portuguese descent born in the rain forest on the edge of Rio de Janeiro, demonstrates the spirit behind "The Poetry and Blues Project" and how we are all connected through art, music and oral tradition.
