The Krash Kealoha (Industry) Award has been conferred on the the Kamehameha Alumni Glee Club.
This year a hard copy ballot will NOT be mailed, instead pdfs of the ballot – the general categories (Album of the Year, Female Vocalist, Group, etc), as well as the genre categories (Hawaiian, Rock, Island, etc.) will be posted on the HARA website.
The Na Hoku Hanohano Awards, occasionally called the Na Hoku Awards or Hoku Awards, are the premier music awards in Hawaii, and are the Hawaiian equivalent of the Grammy Awards. The award winners are currently selected by the non-profit Hawai’i Academy of Recording Arts, which was founded in 1982.
