Living in NY weathering 4 degree temperatures, listening to the beautiful sounds of Raiatea and her group made me feel like I was there in the warmth of the islands. Thank you for sharing your program.
Raiatea is a genius. Has so improved our lives, and so wonderful hearing her everywhere in Hawaii. Mahalo!
