Shokazoba is an award winning horn driven new world funk powerhouse! We perform top quality, high energy music designed to move your feet, inspire the mind, & activate our souls. We aim to generate greater human awareness through original, conscious, danceable new world funk with passionately honest critically progressive topical lyrics. The essence of the inspiration for Shokazoba’s existence is derived from fulfilling deep meaningful human connections within the celebrations of ecstatic music and the joyous expressions of dance. Shokazoba offers our deepest love and gratitude to Fela Anikulapo Kuti and Tony Allen for inventing Afrobeat and for inspiring our existence. Shokazoba heartily thanks the New Africa House at UMASS Amherst and The Luthier’s Co-op in Easthampton MA for so graciously providing the space for us to continue our work.
