Members of the band Boom Booms from Vancouver, British Columbia, share their views on the environment and music during a visit to Karyn Sarring’s Music in World Cultures class Tuesday afternoon at University of Hawaii Maui College. The band, known for planting trees by day and making music at night, said that while previous generations have used popular music to raise social consciousness on issues like race and women’s rights, they are seeing an upswing these days in songs being made about preserving the environment. “People are realizing we do need to speak,” said lead singer and songwriter Aaron Ross. “As musicians, we have the voice.”
