Video #122 of 1000 – Oka – Totem (plus a bonus track). Recorded live at the Fortune Sound Club on July 25, 2012 in HD (1080p on XA10).

The sound of an electified didgeridoo above slide guitar with drum loops rose from a place where buskers often played to no-one. Over 20 people were dancing and laughing and we instantly fell in love with the music of Oka (and bought their first two CD’s – Elements from 2002 and One Talk from 2003). This song is the 5th track on One Talk… Totem…
