INA MAKA is a five-piece psychedelic/soul/alternative Sydney outfit comprising of ex Rastawookie members Janny "Opal Maka Am" (vocals) and Ray Ledesma (guitar, quenacho)
alongside brothers, Frank Attard (drums) and Paul Attard (guitar) who also feature in the heavy psych bands Mother Mars and Frozen Planet....1969. And currently completing the line-up in 2018 is Axel Gomez on bass.
Fusing a unique blend of psychedelia, solid drums, bass grooves and beautiful melodies, Ina Maka have developed an original sound that does not fit easily into any one genre.
The self-titled EP from 2016 neatly displays the bands unique approach over four tracks, while the much anticipated album 'Praying on Satellites' released in February 2018 showcases the bands further creative exploration over ten tracks.
A mesmerizing live performance, incorporating different instrumentation taking you on a journey through Psychedelia, Soul, Hip Hop, Jazz and even Rock creates an element of excitement and nostalgia, which is why INA MAKA is thriving fast and turning heads in the Sydney music scene.
