Okonkuluku!

WAITIKI has received its second nomination for the Hawaii Music Awards. We were first nominated last year for our debut album "Charred Mammal Flesh: Exotic Music for BBQ," and were duly honored: not only with the nomination (and subsequent "Exotica Album of the Year" award), but also with the creation of a category for Exotica.

As far as we know, last year was the first time an awards/recognition program in Hawaii had a category for exotica music! This year, we are honored to be sharing the Exotica category with Jim Bacchi's TIkiyaki Orchestra project. May this be the start of a long and prosperous category for tikiphiles and musicians alike.

WAITIKI's nomination is for our sophomore release:
Rendezvous in Okonkuluku.

Not only is this CD my favorite exotica CD, it's my favorite CD of 2007.
Brother Cleve did a magnificent job of making the already awesome songs sonically intricate and entertaining.

Although I like the ambient nature of exotica, I love the melodies and counterpoint of a well-crafted song as something you can hum.

Which way's the door?
Sorry lady.

I agree whole heartedly. The latest Waitiki CD plus vinyl variant release is a major accomplishment in the contemporary Exotica genre. And it's catchy as hell.

I got Voodoo II and Okonkulu on the same day. By the 2nd time through, I was already losing interest in Voodoo II but I still listen to my Waitiki CD all the time.

Mahalo for this, their second chunk of gilded metal. Prepare to be sacrificed. BWAAAAA-NAAAAAAAA - BWAAAAA-NAAAAAA-AAAAYYYYYYYYY."

Oh snap...they mentioned the Exotica category, and both bands in the Honlulu Advertiser story.....
That's pretty cool.
