In 2010, Piarei (nee Helen Suh Lee…and later her name changed to Helen Suh Mariën) created a collaged picture book, entitled “Suriso” which is based on the Hawaii’ian Ho’oponopono prayer, and in 2016, after her NDE, dedicated the book to the Native Hawaiians/Kanaka Maoli. Having been initiated into Kriya Yoga (2007) and in the footsteps of Ghandi’s civil disobedience, in 2019, she found herself on Maui, living with a Native Royal Hawaiian family — talking to them and everyone native Hawaiian to learn more about Hawaiian history, culture, and its sovereignty activism.
On the beaches of Maui, on two different visits, she started to write and create an original all-ages jazzy-pop song album called “Songs For A Young Queen”. In early 2020, during Covid 19, she returned to Austin, TX to arrange the music and write an additional 2 songs. In the ukulele-footsteps of Isreal IZ Kamakawiwo’ole, the album also includes “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” and “What A Wonderful World”.
“Songs For A Young Queen” is dedicated to a dear part of her Hawaiian ohana, a 4-year-old Native Royal Hawaiian girl who could otherwise be queen, as well as to her child-self (her maternal lineage is royal under the Korean name ,”Suh”). Further, Piarei dedicates this album to all women, men, and sentient beings who are relationship/community-oriented, openly sharing wisdom/truth towards future generations, respecting nature, and therefore displaying their “inner” infinite feminine royalty. Piarei’s “Songs For A Young Queen” songs are about the Creator/nature, giving/wealth, self-esteem/nutrition, and breath/life purpose.
A percentage of the album’s profits go towards the Native Royal Hawaiian girl and her family.
