Hawaii Academy of Recording Arts Announces the 2nd Annual Mele Mei

The Hawai‘i Academy of Recording Arts (“HARA”) is proud to announce the 2nd Annual Mele Mei, a month-long celebration of Hawaiian music, in May 2012. Events include workshops, concert performances, and the Nā Hōkū Hanohano Music Festival and Awards.

Working in partnership with the Hawai‘i Tourism Authority to attract visitors in April and May, when tourism numbers tend to be lower, HARA reached out to various non profit organizations with Hawaiian music related events in May, to create Mele Mei as a month-long destination event. Some events are already well-established, like the Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards, while others are new. All of the events, however, share the same mission as HARA, which is to promote Hawaiian music.

When the final list of events is confirmed, Mele Mei will encompass more than 30 festivals and events which will culminate with the 35th Annual Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards on May 27th.
