HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - In 2016, nonprofit Mana Maoli released its viral hit, "Hawaii Aloha."

The video, which featured dozens of Hawaii's top artists and more than 1,000 children from Hawaiian charter songs singing at 27 locations around the state, got over six million views, won a Hoku Hanohano award for best music video, was featured on Hawaiian Airlines flights and screened at the Smithsonian Institute and other film festivals.

Now Mana Maoli has done it again.

The organization, which supports culture-based music and multimedia education at 12 Hawaii schools, has produced a new video — called "Island Style - 'Oiwi E" — that's certain to be a hit.
