Hailing from Boulder, Colorado, Jababa has been dazzling audiences since their inception in late 2007. The instrumental seven-piece blends elements of funk and fusion jazz, creating a unique sound that pays homage to their influences while simultaneously forging new ground.
With a healthy mix of self-taught and formally-trained (Doctoral and Master's student) musicians, Jababa crafts songs that fuse raw energy, an artistic sensibility, and diverse musical concepts. These elements create a thumping groove accompanied by intricate melodies and arrangements that highlight each member's musicianship.
Jababa has evolved over the years, growing from its original four-piece lineup to incorporate a full horn section. The end result has been truly electric. Dynamic harmonies added by the horns provide a powerful complement to the infectious melodies and grooves laid down by the rhythm section.
Whether they are dropping some down-and-dirty funk at a late night show or killing it softly during a mellow dinner set, Jababa has the ability to connect with the audience in a way that keeps them coming back for more.
