Highlights from Hawaii’s Music Fest…
We love Hawaii for giving us slack-key guitar and chilled out sounds from artists like Jack Johnson, but there is more to Hawaii than this – as the inaugural Na Hoku O Hawaii Music Festival proved.
A contingent of music lovers from all-over the world congregated at Hawaii’s convention centre, May 27, for the opening of this first music festival.
Even Hawaii’s Governor Linda Lingle admitted that she couldn’t believe no one had thought of such a festival previously as she extended her gratitude to 4 Miles LLC “for producing the First Annual Na Hoku O Hawaii Music Festival”.
4 Miles LLC is a Honolulu based trio of producers, passionate about the perpetuation of Hawaiian culture. The group, made up of Ruben Carillo, Dirk Fukushima and Dawn Kanaupio, came together in their goal to produce culturally rich Hawaii based events.
There will be more on the First Annual Na Hoku O Hawaii Music Festival on Armchair Traveler with Meagan Fitton, 11.30 – noon, June 30, 2010.
