The 2011 Na Hoku Hanohano Music Festival started on Thursday with a concert by past winners, two days of workshops, a night
honoring lifetime achievements (above) and the 34th annual awards tonight. Napua Makua of Maui won Favorite Entertainer of the Year and two other awards (plus her album cover), but Hilo's Mark Yamanaka won just about everything else.
Johnny Lum Ho mentored both.
