Don't You Listen?: A Profile of Tona Walt Ohama

Writer's Note:

Bongo Jazz a Speciality is coming out of retirement to pursue a labour of love: writing a major feature on the life and music of Canadian electronic music pioneer Tona Walt Ohama. Over four decades, the 58-year-old southern Albertan has amassed an astounding body of work that is mostly unknown outside of his small but loyal global following. Ohama has eschewed the usual paths to music stardom, preferring to maintain full artistic control of his music and image as an independent artist. Ohama is a major recording artist — creatively, if not commercially — and perhaps one day his landmark recordings (all readily available for streaming and download) will be rediscovered by new audiences.  You can navigate this profile with the links below.
