ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
OKA's music brings musical traditions and cultures together - ancient and modern - black and white. The traditional rhythms and stories of DidgeriSTU's Yadaki (didgeridoo) weave throughout pumping electronic beats, vocals, exotic woodwinds and world percussion - a unique fusion of organic world sounds and electronic music like no other.

OKA's live shows are inspiring, uplifting and emotionally charged, subtle and spontaneous. Their onstage energy is thrilling audiences wherever they perform. Having established themselves here in Australia, OKA have the world in their sights.
Oka have completed their 4th Canadian tour including a main stage gig at The MONTREAL JAZZ FESTIVAL 2007 and numerous performances in Japan, Singapore and New Zealand.

We loved It!
We first saw OKA live at a festival in Montreal and immediately fell in love with their beautiful, heartfelt music and performance style. This CD accurately captures what is best about OKA, and we encourage everyone to buy their CDs. Especially love the cuts "Elements", "Peace" and "Island Home".

Stills the restlessness in me ,stress goes out the window
I don't know how you all do it and how you all got together "Karma" or just plain LUCK for all of us who listen to you. I have to thank you all again for the Total pleasure you give my senses. Keep up the great work and when you get anymore cds out I am at the top of the list to buy it , IF , it is like your other 3, Be True TO Yourselves and don't let anyone interfere, or change your style, you are OKA............... All ages enjoy you I am 61, my grandsons are 5,2 1/2, and 1 1/2 , we color, build with blocks ,look at my shell and stone collection and your background music is always playing keeping things calm , and heightening the interest of these objects. We also try and copy your drums, flutes etc. primative as the kids are they love it, being in tune dosen't matter, it's trying and feeling your music. Thank You again

Music doesn't get any better than this !!!
ARTIST: OKA
SONG: LAKATOI
GENRE: WORLD / WORLD DANCE

There are two places I would very much like to visit in my lifetime; Australia and Alaska. I know, they have very little in common except for the wide open spaces. Both have an immense amount of openness and both have to struggle with the traditions of the past and the needs of the future.
This song, knowingly or unknowingly touches on that sense of struggle.
Lakatoi, means traditional canoe, of the type that is used to shuttle between the Torres Strait Islands, that lie between Australia and Papua New Guinea.
Its a wonder how modern man got to this point. Once such a simple creature, now we can communicate with the other side of the globe at the drop of a hat. As a point of fact, this band requests a review from Austrailia and here in West Virginia, US I can listen and write a review from the comfort of my own home. To think this all started with two cups and some string.
OKA interweaves the nostalgic and modern dance rhythms together seamlessly. I know, most modern day dance rhythms are based on ancient tribal rhythms. But, Lakatoi appears both intrinsically modern and somehow ancient all at the same time.
If you are the kind of person who runs away from world music thinking that it might be too esoteric, or unreachable...turn around and go back to OKA. This band understands that world music can pay homage to the past and shine a light on the future.
Music doesn't get any better then this.
