“Vika and Linda Bull have enchanted Australian music fans for the past three decades with their effervescent performance and effortless harmonies.”– Kathy McCabe, The Daily Telegraph
You can’t beat siblings singing together, Paul Kelly observed when Vika & Linda released their 2020 anthology, ‘Akilotoa. “They make the air beat in sync.” It comes naturally to Melbourne’s Bull sisters – they’ve been singing together their entire lives, starting in church with their mother, Siniva, who came to Australia as a nursing student in 1959. “Tongans by nature are fun, always laughing, always eating, always singing and always praying,” Vika explains.
“We learned to sing at church,” Linda adds. “Our mother was our teacher and we loved listening to the Tongans singing. It was joyous.” From church to the charts, Vika & Linda have enjoyed a remarkable musical journey; as iconic members of The Black Sorrows; on their own 1994 double-platinum debut, Vika and Linda; and on number-one albums by Paul Kelly, Kasey Chambers and John Farnham. Their seven studio albums traverse rock, country, gospel, reggae, R&B, soul and blues, as well as their rich Tongan heritage.
