Owen 'Alik Shahadah | Bio
OCACIA is a coming together; a oneness of concern. From the dawn of mankind, music has always been associated with social and spiritual change-a voice of the people
A multi-award winning recipient including the rare UNESCO award for film.
Music in Africa was always socially responsible, the griots of West Africa held more than a station of mere entertainers. They reported and serviced the conscious of the people. Ocacia is a return to that African tradition with deep social roots. We believe that music is a powerful vehicle for the deeper enlightenment and unification of all mankind. A vehicle of limitless expression and artistic creativity. And so we come to you .
"Come into the Sunshine" originally only performed in 2000 for the St Lucia Jazz Festival, it was recorded in 2007 and released in the 2010 film Motherland.
