Kahulanui loses to Terrance Simien and the Zydeco Experience at Grammys

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 11:12 p.m. HST, Jan 26, 2014

Kahulanui, the Big Island-based group that was the only Hawaii-resident artist to make the final ballot in any award category this year, did not win the award for Best Regional Roots Music Album. It was the third year in a row that there had been one Hawaii-resident artist or group among the five finalists in the category, and the third year that Hawaii had come away empty-handed. The category for Best Hawaiian Music Album was eliminated in 2011.

Winner of this year's Best Regional Roots Music Album went to "Dockside Sessions" by Terrance Simien and the Zydeco Experience.

The winner has a stellar bio, in music and out. The SA has not reported this yet. I thought this year's winner might have been related to the 1985 Grammy winner, Rockin' Sydney Semien. Zydeco cross-over smash hit "Don't mess with my toot toot". "One-man band". "Garage music". Recorded in his home garage.
