Paul Little - Winnipeg Folk Festival Review
"...Jim Bryson with the Weakerthans, The Rural Alberta Advantage, and Oka all played over at the Big Blue @ Night stage. Unfortunately, I was at the Main Stage for most of the evening, so was only able to catch a bit of Oka, an Australian band who took the festival by storm last year and were invited back again to bring the Folk Fest crowd their unique blend of folk dance music fearing a didgeridoo, bamboo flutes, and more. As with last year, when they played the Main Stage, they were once again phenomenal, and the huge crowd assembled at the Big Blue stage were definitely in a dancing mood...."

Hey lovers of reggae, dub, and roots music, here’s a band you might already know about but we just discovered through one of our media contacts Down Under. OKA is their name, and from what we gather from their fan’s comments, OKA’s music is one thing for sure….. but to experience OKA is to see the band Live. This weekend, one of our staff is at the Rainbow Serpent Festival in Beaufort, outside of Melbourne Australia, to do just that and bring the “experience” back to us.



Their music has been described as “…an organic tapestry of phatt earth rhythms in a smooth hi-fidelity sound that is full of uplifting melodies, tones and textures.”



As well, OKA is a celebration of Australian cultures with a very present, powerful and uniting indigenous cultural overtone running throughout the music. When the raw rhythm of the didgeridoo combines with the OKA style dance driven grooves, the energy mustered from their fans is infectious, you can’t stand still.



Try imagine Bob Marley meeting Stevie Wonder via the Chemical Brothers, on acid, playing in a steaming forest, and you begin to get the picture.



OKA continue to impose their status as one of Australias’ best ‘independent music’ exports



Make sure you get the full OKA Experience, be sure to check them out live at one of their upcoming Australian summer tour dates.
