In March 2014, Aloha Got Soul hosted a dual-city party in London and Honolulu. We called it Soul Time In Hawaii, and since then we’ve been hosting it every month in Honolulu, London, and Chicago.
You might remember the mix we created for the party:
Now it’s 2016, and we’re celebrating the two year anniversary of Soul Time with a week of special events in Honolulu. Our friends from Chicago and London are flying to town to help host the events.
