A New Direction in African jazz with SPECTRUM
SPECTRUM are pianist/keyboardist NIRAN OBASA, electric bassist DARLINGTON JOSEPH and drummer STANLEY OHIOS. As SPECTRUM they combine evocative melodies of the pianist and keyboardist NIRAN OBASA, strong bass driven motifs by bassist DARLINGTON JOSEPH and deep grooves by the drummer STANLEY OHIOS. Together they create contemporary African jazz where jazz, afrobeat, hi-life and funk are fused together to create hypnotic free flowing exuberant modern African jazz with strong grooves.
NIRAN OBASA (piano/keyboards) Nigerian pianist NIRAN OBASA established his name as one of the foremost session musicians in Nigeria. Currently he is the musical director of The Yoruba Women Choir and the keyboardist in the afrobeat band Femi and The InRhythms. Lately he focuses on his own compositions that bring together his secular and non-secular vision to create improvisational music that is totally unique. His combination of afrobeat, hi-life, urban grooves and jazz solos brings something new to contemporary African jazz music.
