The Mana Maoli nonprofit is giving youth in Hawaii a chance to experience the world of music through their project Mana Mele. It focuses on academics, business and culture and gives youth exposure to the music industry and all of its facets. We go to the heart of this music and multimedia academy to learn what happens when you put the power of music in the hands of the youth. What doors become unlocked when music becomes the center stage when we are young?
