Biography

Orulas was founded by Franshesco Viran AKA Keko in search of a higher plateau of resonance and lyrical expression for modern world music to emerge from Australia.

In this ambitious and highly anticipated project, Keko has set out to reconcile memories and visions of Latin America, with modern Australian realism through spirited and infectious music. Orulas are out to cement themselves amongst Australia’s best Latin musical acts, also as one that epitomises world class quality, by bringing to life what it means to be Latin Australian, and to share with the rest of the world the diversity of the Australian music industry.

Orulas’ songs are based on experiences of migrants growing up in Australia, within the larger than life backdrop of their Latin American heritage. As Keko blends these two unique experiences together, his musical and lyrical compositions are an honest representation of one’s transformation from the Latin American to the Latin Australian social identity.

In addition to the originality of their compositions, a large part of Orulas’ musical portfolio has been co-worked and developed with fellow musician/composer Oscar Poncel (Arakataka) – a solid partnership formed during the years of the highly acclaimed and successful, San Lazaro. This partnership has now been further enhanced by the solid commitment and arrival of fresh creative blood.

With some of the country’s best Latin jazz musicians on board, Orulas approach to music is to preserve it's Latin American Cultural influence and the many stories that try to capture the search of the Aussie Dream.

Orulas has just released their debut album ‘Alas Negras”, which has been produced by Franshesco Viran; recorded by Adam Rhodes (The Cat Empire, Angus & Julia) & Mastered by Ross Cockle at Sing Sing Studios Melbourne Australia.
