New York based world jazz duo AFURIKO return to SoundCellar with their African inspired grooves. They celebrate traditional heritage from around the world through the prism of spellbinding rhythms and eccentric harmonies. The duo are on a tour that will take them to South America, Europe, and Asia to promote their new album Tao (2019). Successfully funded on Kickstarter and released to critical acclaim with reviews on All About Jazz and Festival Peak, Tao is a shamanic jazz journey from ancestral Africa to NYC, steeped in deep grooves with shades of Funk, Pop, Reggae, Bulgarian, and Enka music.

Akiko Horii – percussion
Jim Funnell – keyboards
