Oka Vanga are Angela Meyer & William Cox, an award winning UK Folk & Roots duo. Whether singing, playing guitar, ukulele or mandolin, their relaxed banter and gift for story telling makes their live performances both interesting and memorable.
Originally from Cape Town in South Africa, Angie is the creative driving force in the partnership and has been described as having “considerable vocal and songwriting talents” by fRoots magazine. Well travelled and free-wheeling, she finally found an anchor in husband and multi-instrumentalist William Cox after their chance meeting at an open mic night in London. Hailing from the city, William was already an established musician and had started his own teaching music studio.
Their musical synergy was instant, and as a highly skilled guitar duo their performances quickly caught the attention of the folk community. Performing at acoustic clubs and festivals Oka Vanga was born. Their songs of faith and superstition, love and loss, death and everlasting hope are all seamlessly woven together and showcase all manner of musical influences whilst remaining distinctly Oka Vanga.
