While 'Down in the Valley' was the CD that first brought to the World the name of Ekolu; 'Shores of Waiehu' is the break out album from Maui’s #1 recording artist! “Shores of Waiehu” introduces a new vibe of Hawaiian Island Reggae Music that shares a very special style and sound. Every area of this project overflows with Ekolu talents. It starts off with the album being co-produced by Lukela and Akoni. The album was also blessed with the engineering and keyboard talents of Na Hoku award winner David Tucciarone. The growth displayed by the boys composing skills is also shown by nine of the twelve songs being original tracks. The vocal talents of Ekolu are enhanced by the addition of Makapu Hoopi'i. The album also had contributions from artists and musicians like Fiji, Max Rabaka, Ben Vai, Jenson Richards, and Creed Fernandez. The popularity of this album is shown by a spot of Billboards World Music charts, the #1 position of various songs on numerous radio stations, and by the sight of fans singing along to every song. "Shores of Waiehu" sets the standard for today's Hawaiian Island music.
