Afro Pop/Funk band, Jaka perform August 10th for Sundays at Six, in Cole Park, Alamosa. Jaka is a World beat dance band based in Santa Fe. Described as Funk-Rock meets Afro Pop, the group has a driving percussive sound with bright sounding memories. Jaka’s live show is a joyful and energy-packed event that brings any audience to its feet, be it for ecstatic or standing ovations. The band’s polyrhythmic, exciting sound is a rich brew of ancient mbira traditions of Zimbabwe and the joyous sounds of South African party music, spiced with funk, played on beautiful homemade marimbas at incredible speeds.
