ALOHA, Holland

    'Aloha' is the Hawaiian word for love, affection, peace, compassion and mercy. Two magazines got that name in Holland at different periods:

    In 1969 ALOHA became the new name of HITWEEK. It was a magazine focused on music, graphic design, comics and counterculture alongside national and international social issues.
    From 1969 till the end of its publication in 1974 ALOHA was independent and operated without permanent writing staff or editors: everybody was welcome to write an article or publish a drawing. ALOHA was ironic, critical, unconventional and seasoned with absurd humour.

    In 1999 the name ALOHA was used again in Holland. ALOHA HET MUZIEKBLAD was a more classical music magazine that can be compared to the UK's Q or MOJO. It was taken over by OOR in 2005. Thank you to Peter Oudejans for this precision and Eric Galzi for the image.
