Hinah is a small and devoted non-profit association formed in February 2001 in France by Éloïse Orseau and Laurent Orseau to help and promote bands they love.
The label puts out previously unreleased recordings (live recordings, radio sessions, demos...) in various formats:
hinah series: Home-made CDrs in a limited print run of only 50 copies in unique packages.
hinah split singles: MP3 split singles, downloadable for free, which feature two bands, that are especially chosen because of their quite different musical backgrounds.
hinah gifts: MP3 recordings, downloadable for free. Some of them are hinah sessions, ie acoustic sessions that take place at the hinah hq with whatever instruments are within reach (guitars, melodica, egg...).

Originally the label operated out of Paris, France. They relocated to Frankfurt, Germany in February 2007.
