Jazz and Afro-soul from Berlin via Accra on Jembaa Groove’s debut album and questing journey featuring Ebo Taylor and Pat Thomas percussionist Eric Owusu
Berlin based international outfit Jembaa Groove come forth with a powerful and poly-rhythmical debut album built around the West African highlife tradition and the spirit of classic US jazz and soul.
Delving into a wealth of influences from across both sides of the Atlantic as well as the Berlin scene - hip hop and jazz - the group’s musical vitality, journeying philosophy and indeed their band name, comes from the energy and spirituality of their take, and on the rhythms that feed the groove. Utilising the musical techniques, cultural context, and spirit of Ghanaian highlife they are as much influenced by the creativity of highlife pioneer Ebo Taylor and Dr. K. Gyasi as they are to the US groove machines of say Charles Bradley or Lee Fields.
