ONOKO™ is a chameleonic creation platform currently focused on releasing music as an interdependent record label. Simply put, it's a record label with broader dreams. By interdependent we mean we are open to the collaborations that feel right, in such ways that respect and benefit both the independent and dependent aspects of the projects.
Nomadically spirited, we work online and offline. We partner up with studios if, when and wherever needed, but purposely avoid building a base, as this interferes with the wildly explorative phase the project is living. We believe this is how our creative waterfall pours at its strongest: from venturing outside of typical comfort zones, flowing between cultural shifts, enjoying natural spontaneity and our beautiful human vulnerabilities. These past few years have been spent mostly between Sweden and Portugal, but also UK, Norway, Denmark, Spain, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Maldives, Croatia, Montenegro and São Tomé.
Musically, our deepest commitment is to the art, not the artist. By doing this we are actually looking out for the latter because people connect much more intimately with a song than with its creator or performer. So that's it... we might be forever discovering what Onoko really is as it shifts and shapes and remolds itself into whatever it's meant to become. For now, this is it: we are releasing the music and channeling the art we enjoy creating. Hopefully other people will resonate.
