Rich in ancestral flows from Accra, to Berlin and London, powered by deep, conga led rhythms and seductive warm horn riffs come Jembaa Groove, whose new album Ye Ankasa | We Ourselves and newly rendered sound, reminds us that jazz, in its contemporary, soulful form is not just a London ‘ting’.
Highlife is Ghana’s colourful national tradition and is at the heart of Berlin based, Jembaa Groove’s groove. And this newly crafted follow-up to their debut album from 2022, goes even further in provoking new perceptions of jazz and soul music, helped by young and senior blood from Ghana and its diaspora.

Before and after the concert DJs J'Peux Tim and Voilà Tim will be presenting African records from their extensive collections.
