Gordon Koang Paul Biel


Bio

Originating from the Nile Valley in what is now South Sudan, Koang was born blind and began playing music from an early age, busking on the streets of Juba and producing his own self-released CD-R’s and cassettes, before becoming a crowd favourite and recording a series of singles and music videos celebrating South Sudan’s cultural wealth.

Gordon's music speaks of peace, love and unity.

"Love each other, and love yourself. It’s not so hard!" - Gordon Koang

Sound, colour and music that makes you feel alive and happy to be in it. Gordon Koang, you are a gift.

I needed this. We all need this. Gordon Koang is among the greatest musical gifts we've received in recent years. The spirit in this music is so nourishing.
