about halana magazine...

issue number 1
issue #1

halana began in the summer of 1995 with the intention of drawing attention to some of the more adventurous music from around the world... in the mailer we sent out for the first issue, by way of introduction, the magazine was described as

"devoted to the discovery and glorification of meaningful, important and often spiritual music and culture from around the globe... of particular interest to us are those people who have chosen to concern themselves with delving deeply into sound, dealing specifically with the more esoteric aspects of what and how we hear by focusing on things like the physical properties and emotional potential of sound and music... to help us on our course of discovery, we hope to gain some insight from prominent musicians, composers and thinkers in all realms of music/sound..."

since then, our ideas have actually come true... we've been able to feature artists from widely varying approaches and diverse backgrounds, each adding their own distinct ideas and histories to help us to gain a little more understanding about the creation and appreciation of music and sound...

and we've grown a bit, too... our circulation has reached 2,000 and our distribution is approaching worldwide, with distributors located in Portugal, UK, Italy, the Netherlands, Japan, Austria, France & Australia, in addition to those in North America
