Artist: Oka Vanga

Angela Meyer & William Cox are an award winning Folk & Roots duo.  Whether singing, playing guitar, ukulele or mandolin , their relaxed banter and gift for story telling  makes their music both interesting and memorable. Coupled with great musicianship, fans of both Folk & Roots music are sure to find something they will enjoy in their music.

Originally from Cape Town in South Africa, Angie was a keen guitarist by the age of six. A well travelled musician, she has worked as both a freelance musician and secondary school Head of Music. Keen to pursue her own creative projects, she eventually took the decision to return to writing and performing her own music and formed Oka Vanga with husband and multi-instrumentalist William Cox.  Hailing from London, William was already an established musician and guitar teacher and wasted no time in recording a demo for the pair.

Their distinctive style of guitar playing together resulted in them being invited to represent the UK at the International Madame Guitar Festival in Tricesimo, Italy in 2013 alongside guitar luminaries such as Ralph Towner (USA) and Clive Carroll (UK). Shortly thereafter they released their debut album ‘Pilgrim’ to critical acclaim.

Most recently,  collaborations have included working with Patsy Reid and producer Mark Tucker on their second album Dance Of The Copper Trail.
