It all began in 1995 where three young and talented men of Maui, began their musical journey – Ekolu. Lukela Keala, Akoni Dellomes and Makapu Hoopii attended Baldwin High School where they were enrolled in the music class. As the year went by, their talents allowed them to perform in front of an audience for the first time at Brown Bags to Stardom. Down in the Valley (1999) was a hit and the album boosted their popularity from the Mainland to the East Coast. They followed up three years later with Shores of Waiehu. Hits such as “Just One Night” and “Shores of Waiehu” received major air play in Hawaii.
Island music, Reggae, Soul, Cotemporary, and Hip Hop by the group Ekolu has touched the hearts of music lovers from all over the world. People of all ages share the same delight when they experience Ekolu’s beautiful musical harmony. Enter a journey with this very special group of Hawaiian music artists, as they present you with a treasure of sounds and lyrics that you will cherish for the rest of your life. As their verification of CD sales, Awards, and Billboard Hits keep coming, this isn’t just any group – this is Ekolu.
Lady Reiko & The Sin City Prophets’ presence commands attention with their uniquely universal blend of reggae, rock, blues and folk. This philanthropic band has a goal to spread positivity, love, peace and awareness of world issues through music that is easy on the ears, yet true to the soul.
Often referred to as “roller coaster reggae,” HaleAmano fuses reggae, blues, rock and soul to create a different sound. Their debut album House of Sharks is self-titled if one translates HaleAmano into English.
