Huggo’s by kona

Today is Tuesday the 5th of December 2017 at 16.00 and we are in Kona, Big Island. Shana and especially me, have been impatiently waiting with huge joy for this day we visit steadily on our home vacation in Hawai’i my favorite bar „Huggo’s“. Now the time has come!

On foot we stroll the souvenir shops and restaurants to the other end of the old city of Kona with a constant view of the sea.
What could be nicer than a bar under the palm trees. The floor is pure, fine white-yellow sand raised by a black lava stone wall, tangible the ocean rhythmically with its waves violently knocking on it and we can watch the sunset with excellent music with a drink in hand. In this bar we know that we will always find our Hawaiian friends. So it was again this time, where we found LT Smooth with his musicians.

He says, „Music is my tool that I use to help, encourage, heal, and improve what we go through in life.“ HEART OF MUSIC ACADEMY is a love work that LT Smooth has been dedicated to delivering since latency in 2014. The greatest gift that man can give to others is his empathy and his „story of FREEDOM ON MY JOURNEY“ to bring about a change in life. „The creation of a music school designed specifically for adolescents at risk is intended for the liberation and life-savers of LT Smooth, with all private and personal affairs forming a circle and providing healings to the needy.
