Mourning Armageddon

“Mourning Armageddon" is a music video by Hawaii artist Makana. He was deeply affected by the January 13, 2018 false alarm when over a million people across the islands received official cell-phone warnings about an incoming nuclear missile attack on Hawaii. Many spent 38 minutes in panic rushing to find shelter and calling their loved ones to say goodbye before the all-clear was given. 

On a visit to Russia later that year, Makana was the first American to go inside a declassified Cold War nuclear bomb shelter deep underground in Moscow. While inside the bunker he spontaneously created this video. For more information visit
