|Grammy voters receiving their preliminary ballots this week are mystified to find that the category for Hawaiian music, placed within the field named “Folk Music,” now resides in a field renamed to “American Roots.”
Same field, new residents, new name.
For the record, the field includes Americana, bluegrass, traditional & contemporary blues, traditional & contemporary folk, Hawaiian, Native American, and Zydeco or Cajun.
pehea la hoʻi e pono ai? How are we to live in harmony?
