Arts & Culture reports from HPR's Noe Tanigawa
ShareThisGreat live music has restorative power, and sometimes, it’s convenient and affordable too. HPR’s Noe Tanigawa offers this visit to an evening of jazz in Kaka’ako. Bassist, singer, Bruce Hamada and pianist Jim Howard play jazz every Tuesday night from 8 to 11pm at Fresh Café on Queen Street. The night I went with a passel of gals, we got great seats and the sound is remarkably good.

ShareThisHawai'i’s 10 year drought has endangered crops in Waimanalo and Wai`anae on O`ahu, and dried up pastureland on the Big Island. On Maui, it has contributed to bringing the Island’s fresh water supply to dangerously low levels. In a continuing series about water on the Valley Isle, HPR’s Noe Tanigawa takes us to one of the wettest places on earth.
