If you're planning to be in Waikiki anytime between April 25 and May 31, 2013, you'll have a great opportunity to enjoy some of the best that the music of Hawaii has to offer.
The Hawaii Tourism Authority and the Hawaii Academy of Recording Arts (HARA) are working together to present a month of concerts, workshops, jam sessions and awards - all culminating with the 2013 Na Hoku Hanohano Awards ceremony on Saturday, May 25 where the best in the music of Hawaii during the past year will be honored.
During the month, there are concerts every Tuesday evening at Halekulani, a huge Concert on the Lawn at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort on May 11, and a special Mother's Day concert at the Moana Surfrider, A Westin Resort & Spa.
Those are just a few of the more than 30 events throughout the month, aptly called "Mele Mei," or May Song. For more details, see our in depth feature 2013 Mele Mei - Celebrating the Music of Hawaii.
