The Kumulipo Creation Epic has relevance for inspiring better Biosphere Stewardship globally and resonates with many other Creation legends throughout the World. The Symphonic Tone Poem Kumulipo Reflections has also gained appreciation and gratitude among Native Hawaiians as a symbol of reconciliation and restitution, as their sacred ecological creation chant Kumulipo is presented and uplifted in soloist position with a prestigious Symphony Orchestra to an entirely new audience.

April 1st & 2nd 2017: World Premiere of Coral Guardians co-founder Anders Paulsson´s Symphonic Tone Poem Kumulipo Reflections with Hawai´i Symphony Orchestra conducted by Grammy award winning JoAnn Falletta in their Masterworks Series in Honolulu.
In November, 2014, CORAL GUARDIANS went on a network and learning journey to Hawaii. During 10 days, we met with researchers, teachers, students, musicians, community leaders, scientists and volunteers. Many of the meetings were documented on video and will be presented in a documentary that aims to raise awareness about the state of the coral reefs, and what can be done to improve it, among the public and decision-makers in politics and business.
