My friends I’ll miss you so but
You know we’ll carry on,
I’ll carry you in my heart and
In my song.
You know we’ll all meet again someday
If we just wait awhile,
I’ll think of you and smile...
Archival footage highlights shared experiences of past Shaloha jam sessions with friends, brought together through instruments from U-SPACE Ukuleles accompanied with Croft Alley fare.
Presented together for the first time, nine solo performances filmed in self-quarantine reinvoke the experience of a Shaloha-style jam session in an original, virtual ensemble performance on vocals, guitar, bass, harmonica and 'ukulele.
“Song Still Remains” is our expression of the resiliency of community and the creative ways music connects us together across distance and time.
The L.A.-based, Shaloha jam ensemble features a collective of musicians and creative professionals brought together in collaboration with U-SPACE Ukuleles and Croft Alley. Shaloha began one evening in 2017, as friends from diverse creative fields gathered for an impromptu jam session. In this spirit, Shaloha co-presents a series of interactive music events in West Hollywood, featuring exclusive Croft Alley dining accompanied with a live, U-SPACE play-and-sing-along experience.
