Everything will be fine, some things take time, Nara Avakian

“I composed this song during a time where everything felt uncertain. What kept me going was holding on to the idea that everything will be fine eventually. Some things truly take time, and all things are temporary anyhow. What we’re going through will pass–everything will be fine, some things take time.”

“The forefront of the quarantine, a wedding performance right before our shut in, my brother, cousin, and I decided to perform in our local park for any people passing by. Didn’t have a stand for the camera either, hence the grass in the front. We’re not wearing any fancy clothes, and no it’s not a music video, it’s a real, raw performance, the hopes of getting a good take are in all of our minds, for the sake of musical excellence and for the enjoyment of others around us. This is the core of a musician. In any circumstance, to make music, despite the world crashing all around us. I’m playing bass guitar, my brother is on drums, and my cousin Danielle, is on guitar. ”

Salsa Isle, Justin and Jan Nathan Abestilla

“I’d like to present to the UCI community my genius brother, Justin. His work in jazz, latin, funk, and classical music has always blown me away. As his main accompanist through the years, it’s been a pleasure to perform beside him. He hadn’t composed anything before, just jazz improvisation in his high school jazz band. But as quarantine did to all of us, it pushed him over the edge, and thus Salsa Isle was born. This chart has a myriad of musical elements from the genres my brother performs in. Even though this recording isn’t an HD 1080p masterpiece, we hope to give the UCI a glimpse into our world of musical performing arts. I’m playing drums and my brother is on keyboard.”

“With the stay at home order, many people have resorted to interactions online, and one way has been through Nintendo’s newest game for the Switch, Animal Crossing: New Horizons. In honor of the series, my brother and I decided to pay homage to first game’s theme. We added some funk/soul to our arrangements, chord changes reminiscent of Sam Smith and Motown. I’m the drummer and my brother is the pianist.”
