Jujuba delivers a funky, danceable style of Nigerian Afrobeat and Juju music. The strength of the eleven-piece revolves around its energetic cohesion between percussion, rhythm and horn sections. Renowned for their ability to engage a wide variety of audiences, the band draws a dance floor full of smiling faces at every event. Jujuba features Nojeem Lasisi from Igbo Ora, Oyo State, in Nigeria. He ranks among the world’s elite talking drum players. Nojeem was given his first drum at age four by his father, also a master drummer, who handed down to Nojeem its powerful language. As a member of Nigerian superstar King Sunny Ade’s group, the African Beats, Nojeem toured the world and appears on numerous recordings with King Sunny, including “Seven Degrees North” and “Odu.

    Would love to check out this band. Have been a fan of big band afrobeat for years now. Last group like this I got to hear was Antibalas. Thank you for the opportunity to win.

    Jujuba is my one of my faviorte band in Portland. I have seen them perform at the Goodfoot with multiple bands since 2008 who can forget Upright Dub Orchestra, Everyday Prophets or Luminous Fog, and list goes on. This band knows how to put on a show and gets the whole crowd moving even the bar staff will get down and shake the bootys to that Jujuba sound.
