Ka Himeni Ana, founded by Richard M. Towill, features amateur Hawaiian music groups performing in the “nahenahe” style, the distinctive Hawaiian music form characterized by sweet vocal harmony supported by unamplified acoustic instruments.

3.      Instruments shall be “acoustic”—no electric or amplified instruments, except Hawaiian steel guitar may be electric and use a small amplifier.
4.      No microphones are allowed for instruments or vocals.
5.      Contestants will be judged on the quality of their vocal harmony, use of Hawaiian language, and overall musicianship.
6.      Song selections must be restricted to compositions authored prior to 1945, or if post 1945 or new original composition, shall be in the “nahenahe” style.
7.      Although First Place winning groups may not enter subsequent contests, individual singers may participate as members of other groups.

Contestants vie for 6 cash prizes ranging from $200 to $1,200.
