Garnering a smattering of support from the media world like KEXP, BBC6 Music, Soulection, KCRW, FIP, WDR Cosmo, Worldwide FM and enough stations round the world off the back of their debut album 'Susuma', Jembaa Groove are causing a storm with their hybrid West African meets US soul & jazz sound.
The Berlin based Afro-Jazz group was founded by producer and bassist Yannick Nolting and Ghanian percussion legend and vocalist Eric Owusu in late 2020. After seeking for the right companions for the upcoming journey and stumbling on a few of Berlin's finest musicians, they finally formed Jembaa Groove, a 7-piece band that combines jazzy sounds from Berlin's uprising underground music scene with 70s Highlife and contemporary sounds from Ghana and its diaspora.
