Still working on that hot first release.



​​Shokazoba is an award winning, nine piece, horn driven, new world funk powerhouse.  They began in 2005 as a Fela Kuti tribute project and now produce original work aimed to generate greater human awareness through conscious, funky, fusion jazz with passionately honest, critically progressive topical lyrics. Voted "Best of the Valley" five times, nominated for "Live Act of the Year" by the New England Music Awards, winners of the 2017 Valley Music Showcase, and recognized with several honorable distinctions by the African Jazz Review, Shokazoba performs top quality, high energy music designed to move your feet, inspire the mind, and activate our souls.  The essence of the inspiration for Shokazoba's existence is derived from the fulfillment of deep meaningful human connections and the timeless infinite celebrations we all share together in ecstatic music and the joyous expressions of dance.  Performing at dozens of venues all over the northeastern United States, Shokazoba is sure to be coming soon to a club, house party, theater, concert series or festival near you...
