Gordon Koang

BIOGRAPHY

Blind since birth, Gordon Koang is a South Sudanese musician based in Australia. Gordon Koang, who was born in the Nile Valley in what is now South Sudan, is known for his unrelenting optimism. 

Peace, love, and togetherness are key themes in his music, and they appear to be becoming increasingly pertinent in our contemporary global situation.

Gordon dubbed the “King of Music” in the country, began learning the Thom, a four-stringed guitar-like instrument that has become the foundation for his signature sound. Unfurling vocal melodies, accompanied by the Thom, constitute his means for communicating his personal experiences of civil conflict and seeking refuge.

Gordon’s unwavering commitment to positivity and inclusivity is even more astounding given his astounding path of perseverance in the face of adversity. He became a household figure in his own nation after releasing 10 albums, travelling the globe, and amassing a sizable YouTube following.

Gordon’s ability to convey something fundamentally human has endeared him to audiences all over the world, giving him the loving moniker “King of Music” in Africa and critical praise in his adoptive country of Australia.
