JariBu Afrobeat Arkestra – JariBu (Tramp Records)

JaribuFela Kuti’s influence has been felt in Japan as well! From Tokyo, JariBu (means “try” in Swahili) is a 13-piece ensemble that mixes Afrobeat with funk & jazz & calls their sound neo-Afrobeat. It features a highly energetic a horn section (sax, trumpet, trombone), beautifully wild flute, & righteous backing vocals (with occasional J-pop undertones).  Another WRUV exclusive from Berlin-based Tramp Records.
