“This song is talking about a person in South Sudan who is a leader who is working in a good way. He is a good man who is thinking about people and taking care of them.”– Gordon Koang
“South Sudan” is the second single from Gordon Koang’s upcoming album, “Unity.” Gordon Koang is a Nuer musician, hailing from the banks of the River Nile in what is now South Sudan. Born blind, he began playing music on the streets of Juba. He made 10 albums back home and became a local celebrity, before going into exile in Australia in 2013, leaving wives and families behind.
Koang and his percussionist/accompanist cousin, Paul Biel, became a legal resident in exile in Melbourne, and now proudly calls himself “Australian.”
