Opening the borders of genre, the acoustic guitar duo Opal Ocean fuses together Rock and Flamenco techniques to create their own epic wall of sound.
Forming in late 2014, New Caledonian Alex Champ and New Zealander Nadav Tabak decided to take their music to the streets busking, using it as a platform for composing their original instrumental pieces.
Based in the heart of Melbourne, the electro-acoustic duo have seen their works blossom, enjoying great success, selling over 16,000 physical CD’s Independently with their single “J.A.M” going viral with over 30+ Million hits on social media.
Opal Ocean are proud to have a dedicated fan base that helped back two successful crowdfunding campaigns for new releases. In late 2016 the duo released their highly anticipated debut album “Lost Fables” recorded with producer Dave Newington and critically acclaimed mixing and mastering engineer Mark Lewis. 2018 saw the release of their New single MEXICANA which was fully funded from Kickstarter fans around the world.

“The Yamaha NX range are the most structurally sound and well built nylon guitars for live and on stage performances out there. They never compromise on precision or tone when amplified and at high volumes are truly the apex guitar for professional musicians.”- Opal Ocean
