Constant Boty Guru Guru Live Jazz Concept
Fun And Entertainment Information
Leader, Guitarist/Composer Constant Boty is one of the most innovative and rising voices in the West African jazz scene today. He created The Guru Guru Project as a trio in late 2010 in Accra, Ghana while rehearsing original material at home with local musicians.
Their music is indefinable yet highly recognizable, intersecting lyrical Jazz and rock guitar, groovy polyrhythmic exploration, and onomatopoeia, sometimes mining the voice of animals and indigenous people in the West African forests and savannah. With the Guru Guru Project, Boty combines the talents of fearless, young bassist and vocalist, Steven Arthur, drummer Fred Awuku, pianist and vocalist Nana Boakye, helping to re-draw and extend the boundaries of Afro-pop to jazz.
The band’s debut album release last year in September, 2015 with Boty’s own label Mevicon Music, was produced by Constant Boty himself and his long time friend from Madagascar, Aina Ramambasoa.
