Thursday Nite Live at Choices featuring Abel & Mambo Jazz Quartet
Thursday 25th June 2015
Venue : Choices, Baricho Rd, Industrial Area
Time : 8 – 11 PM
Mambo Jazz plays a wide spectrum of Jazz, including old Western Jazz, Contemporary funky / blues, but prefers to do Afro-Jazz to capture the vibrant nature of the Afro sounds, from East, West and Southern Africa. The group also does a lot of own compositions, bringing out totally new fresh sound, based on the skills gained from the other Jazz
The group varies from a Quartet to a Quintet (including an extra vocalist).
Abel, the group leader, has played music in Maputo Mozambique, where he was based for 4 years (2005-2009). He then moved to Kenya for a year and half: 2009-2010, that is the time he launched his first Album KOPE, in Nairobi. He then moved to Djibouti for 4 years (2010 – 2014). There he played with one group that plays Afro and French music.
