Crosby, Stills & Nash

One of the most enduring and original musical partnerships of our time, Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Famers Crosby, Stills and Nash have been captivating the world with their peerless three-part harmony, inspired songwriting and brilliant musicianship for more than three decades. The only American band of the original Woodstock era to have an overall societal impact rivaling that of the Beatles, their collective voice has been called “the voice of an entire generation.

” With an impassioned point of view as personal as it is message-oriented, Crosby, Stills and Nash have always sung about socially relevant issues and deeply felt, universal human values—love, family, social justice, the environment, human rights, abuses of power, and much more. Their music has meaningfully chronicled the upheavals and transformations of our time, and their world-renowned repertoire has become inextricably woven into the greater tapestry of our cultural consciousness. Their inimitable sound continues to touch the lives of millions of fans of all ages by way of timeless hits including “Marrakesh Express,” “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes,” “Helplessly Hoping,” “Guinnevere,” “Teach Your Children,” “Wooden Ships,” “Dark Star,” and “Just A Song Before I Go,” to name just a few. They have, in fact, become the voice of many generations.

First joined together in 1968, the band released eleven albums over a thirty year period including eight critically acclaimed studio albums such as Crosby, Stills & Nash, Déjà vu, So Far, CSN, Daylight Again, American Dream, After the Storm, and Looking Forward. Throughout this period, each of the bands members recorded a number of solo albums and collaborative albums as well. Today, looking forward perfectly describes the separate and joint vision of David Crosby, Stephen Stills, and Graham Nash. CSN continues to play major concerts together all over the world, at the same time that each of the three is deeply involved with an array of individual projects.


Fiji Cultural Group 2002

The 12-member Fiji Cultural Group 2002 was flown to California by The Fiji Visitor’s Bureau and Air Pacific Limited to record songs for the Coral Reef Adventure soundtrack.

“Au Nanuma” is about the dying reefs. “Uci Wai” sings about the connection of the rain, rivers, and the sea. “Ka Vuni” is a fun song involving a question and answer between a man and a woman regarding a healthy reef. “Moce o Tama” tells of the creation of the islands, reefs, and the sea. “Na Gone” is a translation of the “Teach Your Children” by Crosby, Stills & Nash.

These songs were written by Steve Wood and translated by Wame Waqanisanini., a UCLA Anderson Graduate School alumni from Rewa, Fiji.


Bob Brozman

Instrumentally, the South Pacific island flavors in the soundtrack are provided throughout the soundtrack by Bob Brozman. His slide guitar playing brings many exotic elements to the film score.

Bob Brozman is a non-stop world-traveling guitarist-ethnomusicologist, author, producer, and recording artist (30 albums). Redefining musical diversity worldwide, Bob is a remarkably prolific artist whose wit, energy, and musical technique combine powerfully to create an unforgettable live performance. A master of slide, fingerstyle, and percussive guitar, Bob's exhilarating show spans the global and musical spectrum, and keeps audiences enthralled throughout North America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia.

Brozman says "I thoroughly enjoyed working on this project, as slide guitar can be so expressive. Working with the images of the film encouraged and inspired me to play evocatively and with a lot of feeling. The importance of the film's subject matter also moved me a great deal, and, I think, resulted in deeper music.”
