AL Goodah

Biografie AL GOODAH: nourishment for the soul Musical career Al Goodah (Carlo Goedhart) draws on a rich cultural heritage of Caribbean music. Born in Paramaribo (Surinam), he grew up in a family of singers and musicians. His mother and sister sang in a choir, one aunt was an opera singer in Curacao, another was a choir director in Surinam, and his grandfather played the guitar and had performed as a professional accompanist to silent movies. His grandfather also had a good grasp of music theory and was able to coach the children in the family to enter local singing competitions. By the age of nine, Carlo’s voice was already impressive and he was soon gaining stage experience via song festivals, appearances as a gospel singer with a brother and cousin, and performances at a local grand hotel Torarica. At 17 he was touring Suriname with his brother as part of a cultural music group. His growing reputation led to an invitation to switch musical genre and become lead singer in up-and-coming Surinamese pop group Exodus
