AJO ARKESTRA BAND
Firstly, the Ajo Arkestra band is an underground group of musician friends from:
- and Cuba.
Furthermore, the band changed its name from ‘The Dublin Afrobeat Ensemble’ to ‘Ajo Arkestra’ a few years ago.
They perform regularly all over Ireland, where they play:
- in the coolest late night venues
- with the best stage settings
- and the best DJs and bands around.
Their material is influenced by legends such as:
- Fela Kuti
- and Tony Allen.
Their sound is saturated with hours of musical persistence. These guys master the long extended phrasing and heavy African ‘riddims’.
There are live elements from:
- and disco at work.
Instrumentally speaking, their music is awash with:
- lead guitar
- and vocal harmonies.
There is never anything usual about this band.
The band records their first EP together in 2013.
