Lista Laka comes from Tubusereia village in the Central Province. A superb musician, he was part of the CHM Superband in their very successful concert tours of the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu. His music differs from that of his former band BJaccs in that his compositions are not all in the Motu language of the Central Province.
He still performs with his band the BJaccs occasionally, as well as having a successful solo career, releasing a total of eight great albums.
In 2003, his song ‘Labour of Love’ hit the PNG music countdowns. PNG got to see a somewhat re-invented Lista Laka and boy did the crowds approve.
Considered to be one of the best musicians in PNG and also a veteran sound engineer at the CHM Supersound Studios in Port Moresby, Lista Laka is surely a PNG great.
