Oonga is the alter ego of Montreal producer and DJ Eli Levinson. Since discovering a passion for sounds and rhythms from other places, he has been tirelessly exploring the music from different cultures while constantly producing music inspired from his journey. His explorations have brought him to festivals in Central America, raves in Australia, clubs in Malaysia.
His productions are built out of a desire to explore the unique rhythms and textures of global music cultures. Chopping up traditional drums, using recordings of rhythms whose origins go back generations, and mixing them into a contemporary soundscape of heavyweight bass tension and release, Oonga seeks to unite bass science with the thump of your heartbeat.
Active producer and organizer as the monthly reggae cumbia night MTL Pachangón, he worked with Shika Shika records, Stonetree records and artists as Afrotronix and Vox Sambou.
