Moku O Keawe Foundation hails Na Hoku winner Zane


The Moku O Keawe Foundation is pleased to announce Advisory Board Member Kuhao Zane has won the 2010 Na Hoku Hanohano Award for Graphics, for his work on the album “Polinahe,” by Lorna Lim (Palm Records).

The title track from Lim’s CD also won Song of the Year, at the Awards presentation by the Hawaii Academy of Recording Arts in Honolulu Sunday, May 31.

Zane, 28, is the son of designer Sig Zane and Kumu Hula Nalani Kanakaole, who are also Advisory Board members. He and his parents helped establish and continue to support the Moku O Keawe Hula Festival, which takes place each November at the Waikoloa Beach Resort.

Already an accomplished dancer and designer, the new Hoku-winner runs two companies of his own: Ethnic Creative and The Cutlery in Hilo.

The Moku O Keawe International Festival is sponsored by the Moku O Keawe Foundation. As a private nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing, enriching and educating the practice and development of hula and its associated arts, its focus is to build, strengthen and inspire the living cultural traditions of Hawaii.
