The 3 members of OJOLO share a love for tribal, shamanic trance music, and
the hypnotic dance rhythms from around the world.
OJOLO Is a multi-cultural trio; an Israeli goddess on Didjeridoo and percussion, an
African/Asian man on djun djun drums, and a Greek/Canadian man on guitar and
electronic loops. Together they produce a vibrant, trance/dance inducing tribal
sound. The music is inspired by primal rhythms,and by the diverse traditions
(North African, Middle Eastern, etc.) that band members bring to the stage and
to the dance floor.
Influenced by the music of North and West Africa, the Middle
East, the nomads and gypsies, as well as the rock, funk and dance music of the
West, 'OJOLO' have created a fusion that is both fresh and familiar. One
observer describes the music of 'OJOLO' as "...new music from our cellular
memory..." Audiences become exuberant, inspired, and positively funky.
