Tia Carrere & Daniel Ho will perform selections from their GRAMMY-winning and GRAMMY-nominated albums. This is an opportunity for audiences to hear the music for themselves. Following a 45-minute performance, Tia and Daniel will join collaborator Amy Ku‘uleialoha Stillman in a moderated discussion.
The successes of Tia Carrere and Daniel Ho in the GRAMMY Awards have drawn controversy, displeasure and attacks from the Hawaiian music community. Many of the attacks are irrelevant to the guidelines for GRAMMY Awards published by The Recording Academy. Last week’s announcement about The Recording Academy’s sweeping reorganization of awards categories adds new dimensions to the volatile mixture of issues in play.
This program is a special addition to the series “… aia i ka wai … Dialogues on [the Present & Future of] Hawaiian Music,” convened by Amy Ku‘uleialoha Stillman, who is the 2010-2011 Dai Ho Chun Distinguished Visiting Professor in UH Mānoa’s College of Arts & Humanities (Depts of American Studies and Music). The series is sponsored by the Dai Ho Chun Distinguished Chair, UH Mānoa’s College of Arts & Humanities, Hawai‘inuiākea School of Hawaiian Knowledge, Kamakakūokalani Center for Hawaiian Studies, and the Gladys Brandt Chair in Polynesian Studies.
