Their music is a melting pot of melodies woven tightly together with unity and precision, and their energetic style of playing is a perfect match for their intense style of music.
Their EP has been warmly received and their music has received regular local radio play in the UK
"Two people on two guitars, they were like greased lightening the way everything was going…absolutely fantastic! A wonderful journey and truly stunning!"
Sue Marchant, BBC Radio, Cambridge.
As a high octane guitar duo Oka Vanga take influences from instrumental Folk music, percussive Brazilian rhythms, acoustic freestyle, and North African music to create music that is both rhythmically powerful and melodically rich. These are their songs.... riffs and the grooves and melodic threads borne from foot-stoppin across many continents, gigging in various bands, jammin with friends, jammin on trains, on hot beaches, on cold nights, making music, singing, dancing. It's not acoustic hip-jiggery... just two guitar players making good music, recorded and mixed on analogue tape the old fashioned way and played on stages big and small.
