Biography:
 

From Mare (New Caledonia), one of the islands from the Loyalty Province, comes a colorful 8-member band called OK! Ryos. Edouard Wamejo is the band leader and lead vocalist. The group performs soulful songs mainly in the Nengone language. Their vocal melodies and harmonies are like the jewels of the islands they come from.

Kanak music from this part of the world has been passed down from generation to generation. Today, it has merged with a cooler oceanic feel as well as reggae.

Situated in the heart of the South Pacific and lying 1500 km east of Australia, New Caledonia is made up of a group of islands - The Main Island, Loyalty Islands, Isle of Pines, Belep and a myriad of small islands. The barrier reef stretches 1600 km long and encircles the main island.

New Caledonia is a French colony populated by native Kanaks, as well as French colonists and immigrants from various Asian countries.
