It's not known exactly what caused nine fresh-faced young men from Amsterdam to suddenly become collectively infected with a pure understanding of Afrobeat and Ethiojazz, but audiences have been feeling the benefit ever since. They started out sometime in 2010, spreading the nocturnal jungle fever at clubs around The Netherlands and Belgium and were soon convincing crowds at festivals of all flavours from North Sea Jazz and Sziget to Festival Mundial and Solar. Recently they were in Paris, sharing the stage with some of their heroes: Mulatu Astatke, Orchestre Poly-Rythmo de Cotonou and Tony Allen. Although all influenced by a broad range of music styles, together they form a solid unit that skilfully pumps out an energetic hybrid African funk with a consummate coolness that belies their apparent youth. The future looks bright
