PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE On November 11, 2010, the Board of Governors of the Hawai‘i Academy of Recording Arts was formally installed at our annual General Membership Luncheon and meeting at the Willows Restaurant. Nā kahu Bettina and Joe Pekelo Recca from Ho‘omana Na‘auao Ke Alaula Church presided over the installation. Your officers for the next term are Ku‘uipo Kumukahi (president), Pali Ka‘aihue (vice–president), Lea Uehara (secretary), Alan Okami (treasurer), and Hailama Farden (immediate past president, and sergeant–at–arms). And the governors include Keola Donaghy, Kale Hannahs, Maria Hickling, Gaylord Holomalia, Kimo Kahoano, Fred Krauss, Mailani Makainai, Kenneth Makuakāne, Bill Meyer, and Marlene Sai. We welcome the newly elected members Kale Hannahs, Kimo Kahoano and Alan Okami. Immediately following the installation, board members visited Krash Kealoha at Straub Hospital bearing gifts of song and dance, wishing him love, and deeply thanking him for pioneering such a great organization. He will always be loved and greatly missed. The Board is happy to announce that the Nā Hōkū Hanohano Music Festival will be held May 26 to May 29, 2011. A media event will kick off the week followed by two days of workshops, the Lifetime Achievement Awards, and culminating in the 34th Annual Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards. The Festival will close out a month–long series of events dubbed Mele Mei. HARA
members, nonprofits and other organizations will hold their events throughout Hawai‘i during the month. To advance Mele Mei and the Nā Hōkū Hanohano Music Festival, HARA has partnered with the Hawai‘i Tourism Authority (HTA) and others including Kintetsu International Hawai‘i Co., who will actively promote these events in Japan. Volunteers are needed! If you are interesting in contributing to this event’s success, please contact Bryson at the office (808) 593–9424. The planning has already started so if you can help, please call today. We look forward to your joining the effort in supporting your Academy and growing Hawai‘i’s music and recording industry. Much of HARA’s work is done at the committee level. In the masthead above the standing and ad hoc committees and the chairs are listed. Membership on committees is open to all regular and associate members. If you are interested in helping in any area and would like to serve on a committee, please contact Bryson at the office. Malama pono, a he ʻiʻini koʻu e komo kēlā me kēia lālā i ke kōkua, kākoʻo a hoʻoholomua ʻana i ka Hawai‘i Academy of Recording Arts! ‘O au nō me ka ha‘aha‘a a me ke aloha nui, Ku‘uipo Kumukahi SINGLE OF THE YEAR CATEGORY REESTABLISHED The Board of Governors voted in 2009 to reestablish the Single of the Year Category for releases made during the 2010 calendar year. This change means that the first award will be made at next year’s 2011 Nā Hōkū
Hanohano Awards. The Board recognized the renewed popularity and value of singles in online sales in addition to the continued release of physical CD singles. Here are the criteria for the award: Single of the Year: Best–recorded performance of a song released as a single in either physical (CD) or digital format. The recording may not be included on a physical CD or packaged and promoted as part of a digital “album” on any online service unless the release of the single precedes the CD/album release by at least 30 days. Physical CD singles may include multiple renditions of the same song (i.e., remix and/or karaoke versions) but only one version of the song may be nominated, and the CD may not include any other songs. REMINDER REGARDING RELEASE AND ENTRY DEALINES FOR 2011 NĀ HŌKŪ HANOHANO AWARDS This is a reminder to all members that in order to be eligible for the 2011 Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards, releases must be available for purchase by December 31, 2010. Please note that it is not enough to upload them to iTunes, TuneCore or other service by December 31, 2010; they must be available for sale by that date. The HARA office must receive all entry forms for the 2011 Awards no later than January 31, 2011. No exceptions will be made. ENTRY PROCESS FOR 2011 NĀ HŌKŪ HANOHANO AWARDS HARA members will be able to enter eligible releases again this year via our online entry form, which is available at:
The nomination form is also available from the HARA website as a downloadable .pdf (Adobe Acrobat) file that you can print out and submit. If you have difficulty with the online form or downloading the .pdf, please contact the HARA office as soon as possible! GENRE AND ADJUDICATED CATEGORY CHANGES The Board also addressed the concerns brought to it by members regarding the entry of releases by non-resident artists. While noting that HARA’s primary mission is “to preserve, protect and promote Hawai‘i’s recording industry,” we also recognize HARA’s unique role in supporting and recognizing those music genres that have originated or developed in Hawaiʻi, and are now being recorded elsewhere. For this reason, albums by non–resident artist(s) may be eligible only in the Hawaiian, Island Music and Slack Key Guitar categories. Noting that there is no other venue to honor excellence in haku mele or Hawaiian language performance for non-residents, the Board has voted to allow non-resident entries into the adjudicated Haku Mele and Hawaiian Language Performance categories. Please note that non-resident artists may not submit releases in any other genre categories. These changes took effect for 2010 releases, and will be applied to those releases entered for next year’s 2011 Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards.
CHANGES IN RESIDENCY REQUIREMENT & ELIGIBILITY FOR ALBUM OF THE YEAR This is a reminder about a change in eligibility requirements for the Album of the Year category that allows non-resident producers may be eligible in this category, provided that the artist on the album is a Hawai‘i resident, and that 75% of the album was recorded in Hawai‘i. As with the genre and adjudicated category changes noted previously, these changes will also take effect for 2010 releases, and will be applied to those releases entered for next year’s 2011 Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards.
