60 Seconds With... OKA
So then, what's the band name and what do you 'do' in the band?
OKA - I'm Lanos and I'm on woodwinds and guitar
What do you reckon people will say you sound like?
Here's what someone actually said: "Imagine Bob Marley Meets Stevie Wonder via the Chemical Brothers in a steaming rainforest - then you start to get the idea".
What do you love about making music?
You have to travel with your mates, meet new people and go to festivals all the time in order to make it viable.
What do you hate about the music industry?
Can't think of anything, the new breed of the industry reeks of freedom, optimism and limitless potential.
What can a punter expect from your live show?
Three guys having a great time onstage, and there may be a strong urge to move the body in relation to the music with reckless abandon.
What've you got to sell CD-wise?
We just released a new one called Milk&Honey, 14 new tracks and we'll be playing at least three or four of those in the live set.
When's the gig and with who?
November 18 at Shine On Festival in Pyrenees Range with a stellar lineup including Shapeshifter, Big Gigantic and Wax Taylor.
