Luke Balzan - Global Beats SA

OKA opt to keep the listener guessing as they blend elements of
blues, world music, and acid jazz with slick ethereal grooves and nice
touches of electronica. Slide guitar makes its presence known admist
the cool chords and grooves, while a plethora of international
percussion instruments, including djembe, darabuka, and congas, and
haunting didgeridoo provide a stark natural contrast to the electronic
body of music. The pace is chilled out, providing an excellent base to
launch the party, as well as a fitting conclusion while you sip the
remains of your late night whiskey.'




Insight Magazine 2006

The trio have created an intriguing blend of chill-out grooves, ambient beats and lush bass lines with some didgeridoo and woodwinds thrown in for good measure. Music Makes Me Happy is a slickly produced collection of tracks that soothes the soul while fusing indigenous music and electronic beats to stunning effect. This album delivers on the promise in the title – it’s a tasty piece of ambient confection that should deliver a measure of happiness even to the most cynical of listeners.
