We’re over the moon to report that this year’s Songlines Best Group award goes to Ayom having released their debut album to great fanfare last November. Massive congratulations to Jabu Morales and Alberto Becucci and the whole band who have made such a scintillating record which traverses between Brazil, Cape Verde, Portugal (lusophone countries) with a touch of Italy for good measure. Deserved Best Group award winners and great to see the award going to a brand new group.
“It’s never the wrong time for a genre bending slice of Brazilian-Angolan Cape Verdean swing enhanced with accordion” Mojo
“Brazilian vocalist Jabu Morales sings cloudless salutations to the Orixas and the band are spirited” Wire
The band are performing at Jazz Cafe on September 6th and tickets are available HERE
