The Jo Kunnuji Experiment is a cosmopolitan, multi-cultural ensemble fusing indigenous West African musics with contemporary musical elements. Comprising members from diverse musical backgrounds, the band re-interprets traditional Ogu music with jazz, gospel, pop and soul elements. In their newly-released album, Avale, Jo Kunnuji Experiment joined forces with Gogoke (an indigenous Ogu band from Badagry, Lagos Nigeria) to create a transcendental style with transnational acclaim and accessibility. This unique sound tempered with deep cultural heritage and informed by a trained appreciation, is brimming with African pride. Avale combines familiar modern jazz practices with polyrhythmic turns, percussive undertones, syncopated instrumentation and enchanting vocals. This music is best experienced live with a depth only palpable through shared spaces.
