Mele Mei is the celebration of Hawai’i’s music, hula and culture. The 6th Annual Mele Mei Celebration was our biggest year yet! Music and hula events are held from April through June at various hotels, venues, on the beach and statewide. From ‘ukulele to steel guitar, traditional Hawaiian music to slack key, island reggae to rock-and everything in between-Mele Mei has something for everyone.
Following the Feb. 2016 preview, Mele Mei 2016 started on April 10th, in Japan, at the 2nd Annual Nā Hōkū Hanohano Nomination and Celebration concert. Events were featured in Hawai‘i, weekly, through June 2016.
Our sincerest thanks for coming out to support Mele Mei 2016. Planning and events for Mele Mei 2017 are already underway and please check back often for new updates on Mele Mei 2017 and the super celebration for the 40th Annual Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards scheduled for May 20, 2017.
