Hawaii Ponoi by Kalakaua and Henri Berger

The Hawaiian Music Hall of Fame was established as a non-profit corporation in 1994 in the U.S. state of Hawaii. The annual honorees include individuals, groups, institutions, chanters and songs.[1]

The Royal PatronsEdit

King David Kalakaua, Queen Liliuokalani, Princess Miriam Likelike and Prince William Pitt Leleiohoku II were siblings known as Na Lani 'Ehā, or The Royal Four, for their patronage and enrichment of Hawaii's musical culture and history. All four were composers. Their aggregate body of musical compositions in the Hawaiian language numbers in the hundreds. After the hula had long been banned by missionaries, Kalakaua restored it as a symbol of the Hawaiian culture. Kalakaua and Liliuokalani were the last monarchs of the Kingdom of Hawaii, but The Royal Four's legacy of music to Hawaii lives on through individual artists. The Hawaiian Music Hall of Fame acknowledges the royal siblings as their patrons.[2]
