Dynamic and Upbeat song about the island of Maui, Hawaii and its dormant volcano. Happy lyrics and nice rhythms. Great to sing and/or dance a long. Strong lead vocal with nice backup singing, dynamic shift into a different style, sensous guitar solo.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jamallad Bio

Lucien Kouassi aka Jamallad was born in the Ivory Coast, West Africa, where he started his music career by learning how to play the guitar.
This set him on a musical journey that began in West Africa, trailed across Europe, and finally the USA, where he acquired a degree in Music and Business at Moravian College in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
In his formative years Jamallad studied Classical Guitar and Folk, to later cross over to Pop, Rock, Reggae. However, the west African Music Cavasha, which is the precedent to Soukous and Makossa is the undertone of Jamallad’s music.

Since college JAMALLAD has been writing and performing music that explores the human condition in a distinctive style that is his own. The repertoire reflects the global culture that Jamallad has so fortunately enjoyed. He sings in various languages.

Backed by four other musicians he packed clubs form Eastern Pennsylvania to the Jersey shore ( Long Beach Island), Through Delaware, Ocean City Maryland, Virginia Beach, and every coastal state southward to the Florida Keys ( Key West) for Spring breaks for several years before relocating to Los Angeles.

Now in Hawaii, Jamallad had teamed up with partner Chetanaa Petra Zoeller to co-write and produce more music. In 2008 they released a world class must hear album titled Global Citizen. Now we are proud to make our new single "Haleakala" available. It talks about our life on Maui.

Jamallad has always understood himself as a messenger, and uses his music as a vehicle.

Jamallad’s Music is conscious music

as it brings important messages across in a fun, upbeat way. His talent and inspiration allow him to communicate to a broad audience, in various musical styles; i.e.
World, Reggae, Rock, Pop, Afro Pop, and Folk.
The topics range from world peace, environmental issues, to relations( from personal to global). Some songs are just plain fun dance songs.

JAMALLAD says:
As an artist, I want to reach as many people around the world as possible. I want to have a positive impact with my music, provide for myself, my loved ones, and all those who are involved. I seek to educate, inform and stimulate while entertaining. Making music is as vital to me as breathing.

The Music and Us
For the longest time, artists, by enlarge have talked about a big “ They “,
separating ourselves from the responsibility of it all.
We believe that the talent of music that we have gives us a great tool for
Communication .
Freedom of speech makes it possible for people in the arts, especially music,
To freely talk about any and everything. Lots has been sung about: love, sex, anger
Etc…
It is our belief that in our days, music is a great tool for unifying, raising awareness,
sharing our common Hopes, fears, aspirations, and for giving comfort. We believe in a
humanitarian purpose to the music we make.
It is a window to the soul, yours and ours. We feel blessed that the world is listening
To the voice of wisdom that comes through us. We therefore aim at making music that serves
Humankind.
