Lo’Jo – a Africa interest event taking place on 2017-11-08 19:30:00 in United States
Since they first got together in 1982, in a tiny village near Angiers, France, LoJo have been one of the most eclectic, eccentric and mesmerizing musical collectives that Europe has ever produced. Like their British contemporaries, The Mekons, LoJo are globetrotting legends and musical shapeshifters whove gone through many incarnations, and theyve incorporated theater and visual art into their music since the beginning. Led by charismatic songwriter Denis Pan, LoJos travels have taken them from collaborations with street theater groups and circuses to concerts in West Africa and the Sahara (including the very first edition of the now-legendary Festival au Desert), festival stages in Europe and North America and even a residency at Paris venerable Cabaret Sauvage.Along the way they managed to record several iconic albums from their 1993 debut recording Fils de Zamal and their 1998 breakthrough Mojo Radio to their latest album, Fonetiq Flowers (set for release on September 1st, 2017 on World Village/PIAS). All have shaped LoJos unique sound, which reimagines classic French chanson spiked with sounds and instruments from all over the world. With over 30 years of musical vagabondage behind them, LoJo shows no signs of slowing down yet, and continues to tour and record into their third decade.
