> From DEVASTATION SPRINGS the sounds and spirit of goodwill with the Aloha Iapana benefit concert that teams Hawaii's top musicians with a common cause to help those affected by the Japan earthquake, Pacific tsunami and other crises near and far. Conceived by kumu hula Napua Makua, the show features Keali'i Reichel, Willie K, Makua & Halau Na Lei Kaumaka O 'Uka, Amy Hanaiali'i Gilliom, Mailani Makainai, Kaumakaiwa Kanaka'ole, Na Palapalai, Uluwehi Guerrero and more from 4 to 10 p.m. Saturday at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center Ampitheater and Yokouchi Pavilion. Like many in Hawaii with Japan ties, Makua was deeply affected by the recent tragedy and saw the opportunity to respond in the spirit of unity: "I reached out the Hawaiian music community here on Maui . . . and the outpouring of their remarkable support has been an inspiration to everyone involved with Aloha Iapana." Tickets are $25 in advance, $30 at door; proceeds will be donated to "Aloha for Japan" fund. For details, visit
