Traditional adungu and nanga harp master and singer, Otim Alpha got his musical start as a wedding ceremony leader in his native city Gulu. He is one of the few musicians to pass down and preserve Acholi folk traditions.

In 2001 Otim Alpha and producer Leo Palayeng took the traditional Larakaraka wedding music of the Acholi people of Northern Uganda and South Sudan and remade it with computer software, synths and electronic drum-kit beats. The result was a new hyper-frenetic electronic version known as Acholitronix. Since then his pioneering concepts have inspired an exhilarating micro scene, synthesising electronic sounds and traditional instrumentation into a fast-paced polyrhythmic genre primed for dancefloor madness.
