||Raku O’Gaia (formerly known as Soulman...) comes via Jamaica and England to life in Australia.
A towering 6 foot 5 inches tall, he is a fluent raconteur spreading feel-good vibes in the high energy performances that are his trademark.
Beginning in the depths of London’s Underground Subways, he honed his skills in the volatile world of workingmen’s pubs, clubs and bars across Europe, England and Australia. O’Gaia has become a one-of-a-kind singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist, and a classic tunesmith with several diverse and uplifting releases to his name.
His dynamic groove-laden rhythms on guitar, didgeridoo, mouth-harp, slide and assorted percussion move from toe tapping country-funk and blues, to road-ready rock’n’roll and journey on through folksy balladeering to Caribbean style reggae all in the service of the most positive and inspiring songs played back to back...anywhere.
He drew capacity crowds at each of his 5 Woodford performances, has featured at multiple Bluesfests and has held the stage with Archie Roach, John Butler, Xavier Rudd, Pete Murray and other iconic Australian artists.
He has recently opened for Ash Grunwald, The Commitments and Dragon.
Raku O’Gaia …the name says it all… A fantastic singer and performer…”
Mick O’Regan Radio National
“Colourful, energetic, exotic and talented, Raku has warmed the hearts of many with his high voltage smile, incorrigible presence and mesmerizing performances….”
