Shokazoba / Press

“The name of the music is Afro-beat. And no one in Western Massachusetts plays it better than Shokazoba.”

“This is the kind of show you can straight up rock some contact improv at and no one will bat an eye.”

“Harmonic grooves...guitar ...percussion...drums...horn section....lead and back-up vocals. Songs wax and wane for 10, 15, even 20 minutes, but who's counting when you're dancing in a trance?" ”

Daily Hampshire Gazette

“Shokazoba captures a piece of Fela and keeps his message running strong”


“Very, Very Good! Shokazoba has got the Afrobeat spirit.”

“High Energy Afrobeat”
