“You know how it is when you hear a saying or a catch phrase. The next thing you know, you are using it and melding it into your own vocabulary. Having lovely Twitter friends who are Australian and theatrically inclined, I picked up the phrase Chookas from them. The Urban Dictionary defines Chookas as Theatrical slang used mainly in Australia to wish performer good luck. Synonymous to: break a leg. One day after using the phrase on Twitter, a friend asked me what it meant. Soon after my reply I received a tweet that simply said It’s also my name! This was my personal introduction to an amazing young man named Chooka Parker. Chooka Parker is a 19 year old musician from Red Lion, Victoria, Australia. Growing up in the beautifully scenic farm land, away from electronics and the diversions of the day, Chooka found time between his homeschool studies and working on the farm to express his creative side by teaching himself piano at the age of 14. And so a prodigy was discovered.”
