Archives Month 2020: Celebrating Hawaiian MusicPosted on Oct 1, 2020 in HSA News
In celebration of the 100th anniversary of Mekia Kealakai’s return to Hawaiʻi after spending over 20 years of spreading Hawaiian music aboard, we are proud to host a series of virtual exhibitions in honor of the pioneering Hawaiian musicians and composers that have touched so many with their unique style of music. Please join us daily on Facebook and Instagram (@HawaiiStateArchives) as we feature a special music themed photo from our collection (with special selections from surprise guests), and a new online exhibition drawn from our archival holdings posted every week in October. We hope that you will enjoy these exhibitions as much as we enjoyed selecting them. Highlights include: hundreds of historic music related photos, music from Queen Liliuokalaniʻs collection, Johnny Wilsonʻs letters and day books, original musical compositions of Bandmaster Henri Berger, and rare sheet music from the Paul Markham Kahn Collection.
