The self-styled ‘Northern King’ of Gulu prides himself in his ability to play almost all the native instruments of the Acholi – the adungu, tube fibble, calabash, thumb piano and many more. Ocen is going to expand into the world of electronic music, performing with a DIY loop station made from old computer keyboards, creating all the sounds himself live. In 2022 Ocen will release his collaborative works with Rian Treanor on Nyege Nyege Tapes.
