The audio on this site aired on Hawai'i Public Radio as the "Pacific Visions" radio series and was produced by the State Foundation on Culture and the Arts Folk Arts Program with support from a National Endowment for the Arts grant.

All the music in this series was played by artists who have participated in the SFCA Master-Apprenticeship Program. We would also like to thank Punahele Productions, Kendo Music and Dancing Cat Productions. In addition, mahalo to all musicians who contributed to the Musics of Hawaii project, an excellent resource which is available from the University of Hawai'i Press.
