Oakland-based music producer and performance artist Onah Indigo aka noaccordion dedicates her platform to amplifying extraordinary voices in the Bay Area and beyond. As a multi-instrumentalist, she defies the limitations of genre by introducing club beats to underground MC’s or freaky variations on mainstream key patterns to techno and drum ‘n’ bass. Originally influenced by the wave of electronic music that swept Europe in the early 90’s, claiming her own sound became the top goal for this eclectic artist. Exploring a variety of sounds from samba to jazz, internationally-known influences have infiltrated her beats while introducing her music to festival goers from all over the world. Onah has performed as noaccordion at California’s Lightning in a Bottle Festival (20k capacity venue) and Symbiosis Gathering (10k), Nevada’s famous Burning Man Festival (60k+) as well as well-known venues like San Francisco’s Regency Ballroom, The Mint and Sound Factory.
Past collaborations include Evan Fraser of Dirtwire, SkipWicked of Indubious, Eenor of Les Claypool’s Frog Brigade, Stephen Suchan of Soohan and many more. Onah’s music has been playlisted on over 50+ Spotify playlists and she has received high local praise by Oakland Magazine. By channeling music’s internal pulse, the noaccordion project has transcended limitations and has even broken its own rules in the name of creativity: “I call my project noaccordion for a reason. People have strong reactions to the instrument. Most people love it; it often reminds them of their cultural past. But some people can’t stand it. It’s a particular sound, designed to be played outdoors and loudly,” she says. “I may not play it a few years from now. It may not appear in my repertoire. I don’t want to be defined by it.”
