WHAT IS THE NA HOKU HANOHANO AWARDS?

The Hawai‘i Academy of Recording Arts (HARA) and Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards trace their origins to 1978 and KCCN-AM Radio, then the world’s only all-Hawaiian music radio station. The Hawai‘i Academy of Recording Arts also directs programs to promote quality and growth in the recording and music industries in Hawai‘i. In conjunction with Tropical Music, Inc., Hawai‘i state universities and colleges, the Hawai‘i Academy of Recording Arts awards scholarships annually.

The Academy has conducted seminars and panel sessions on the music and recording business with the Recording Academy and the Hawai‘i Island Economic Development Board. In conjunction with the State Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism (DBEDT) and Hawai‘i book, fashion and food groups, it participates in events and projects promoting Hawai‘i product.

A separate ceremony for the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Awards honors Hawai‘i recording industry pioneers and veterans, who are also acknowledged during the Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards live broadcast. A voluntary, 15 member-elected Board governs the Hawai‘i Academy of Recording Arts, a non-profit organization formed in 1982 to promote Hawai‘i’s recording industry and the music of Hawai‘i.

A Message from the President of HARA

Greetings & Aloha from Hawai‘i

On behalf of the Board of Governors and all the members of HARA, the Hawai‘i Academy of Recording Arts, I wholeheartedly invite you to attend our inaugural Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards Nomination and Music Festival to be held in Japan on April 4-5, 2015.

This will be the first of what we hope will be a yearly event bringing the best and brightest musicians and performers from Hawai‘i’s varied and dynamic music scene to our dedicated fans and friends in Japan, and we couldn’t be more excited.

The Nomination Concert on Sunday April 5 will be the first time HARA has staged a special event to announce ballot finalists and to celebrate the yearly Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards which are held in late May in Honolulu, Hawaii. Our decision to stage this event in Tokyo is our way to thank you, the dedicated fans of all genres of Hawai‘i’s music in Japan and to recognize your continued support of our artists, music, language and culture.

We have endeavored to put together an extemporary lineup that both showcases the quality and passion of Hawai‘i’s musicians and will be sure to entertain and thrill.

Please join us, I look forward to seeing you in the spectacular Maihama Amphitheater in April!

Mahalo and All the best!

Pali Ka’aihue

Hawai‘i Academy of Recording Arts President
