Hailing from the French owned New Caledonia, Bernard Uedre brings his fusion of reggae and kaneka music.  Kaneka blends vocal polyphonic singing styles, traditional Kanak music, pop and various world genres.  In New Caledonia, Jamaican reggae has influenced musicians and has shaped the sound of many local bands.

Uedre’s upbeat dancehall rhythms combined with optimistic vocals make “Rawagu” a massive party jam.   You can’t help but smile and envision yourself laying on a warm, sunny South Pacific beach.  Listen for yourself and take your brain, body and soul on a daydream vacation to New Caledonia …
