From: Berlin, Germany
Sounds Like: Afrobeat with a touch of Sly Stone and North African funk
Onom Agemo & The Disco Jumpers are an interesting group: five white musicians from Berlin who play Afrofunk but also incorporate sounds from Ethiopia and have traveled to Morocco extensively to record with local musicians in order to gain an authentic feel for North African rhythms.
And they jump discos.
This kind of commitment to mastering a particular sound, matched by their willingness for vast musical exploration, makes the music all the more groovy and wonderful.
Listen to some tracks off their latest release Cranes and Carpets below.
