Renowned for celebrating Australian culture with a very present, powerful and uniting Indigenous cultural overtone running throughout the music, OKA have made their mark on the music scene.
One way to define OKA is by the three interesting characters that make up the outfit, bringing together a variety of influences, backgrounds and talents.
Stu Boga Fergie (Didgeristu), the big man behind the electronic beats and keys, brings raw didgeridoo and vocals inspired by his Aboriginal heritage. Chris Lane plays captivating melody on slide guitar, harmonica and woodwinds including bamboo flute and sax. Making up the trio is Samoan-Australian Charlie Zappa – a rhythm specialist with beats of Polynesian fire.
The boys play the Beach Hotel in Byron on Sunday.
