Onom Agemo and The Disco Jumpers

Afrobeat can be a pretty formal, sterile and sometimes even boring affair in the hands of many of Fela Kuti's admirers worldwide. Thankfully this is not the case with the oddly named Onom Agemo: Led by the restless saxophonist Johannes Schleiermacher, this Berlin-based outfit has been pushing the boundaries of the genre to its most extreme, incorporating explosive Jazz improvisations, Krautrock, bubbly keyboard sounds and Psychedelia to create a spell-binding musical melange completely their own.

Now augmented by the excellent Danish-Mozambiquan singer and poet Natalie Greffel, Onom Agemo and The Disco Jumpers present their new album "Magic Polaroid", released by Hannover's Agogo Records label in November for even more twisted polyrhythms and out-there action. Seen in concert definitely one of the best bands available in Germany these days!
