Hawai‘i Academy of Recording Arts (HARA). The Academy is a nonprofit organization formed in 1982 to stimulate interest in the local recording industry and the music of Hawai'i.
HARA traces its origins to Hawaiian Radio KCCN, which conceived and organized the 1st Annual Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards in 1978. KCCN celebrated its 30th anniversary in 1996. The Academy highlights its year by producing the Nā Hōkū Hanohano honoring the achievements of excellence in the recording arts. Only entries created, produced, and/or engineered; recorded by a local resident artist, musician, or technician, released during the eligible year; and primarily distributed in Hawai'i are acceptable for nomination (non-resident entries qualify only in the genre categories, Hawaiian, Contemporary, Anthology, Christmas, etc.).
After the show we look forward to meeting up with friends at Tiki's Grill & Bar and watching Beach 5 perform.
