Onom Agemo & The Disco Jumpers feat. Ahmed Ag Kaedy (DE/ML) // Copenhagen Jazz Festival 2022

Explosive jazz, far out krautrock and bubbly keyboards

The psych afrobeat quintet Onom Agemo and The Disco Jumpers is returning to Copenhagen with the marvelous guitarist Ahmed Ag Kaedy, and will take over the outdoor stage at Onkel Dannys Plads during this year’s Copenhagen Jazz Festival.

Please note: the concert takes place at the outdoor stage Onkel Dannys Plads

Afrobeat can be a pretty formal, sterile and sometimes even boring affair in the hands of many of Fela Kuti’s admirers worldwide. Thankfully this is not the case with the oddly named Onom Agemo: Led by the restless saxophonist Johannes Schleiermacher, this Berlin-based quintet has been pushing the boundaries of the genre to its most extreme, incorporating explosive Jazz improvisations, far out Krautrock, bubbly keyboard sounds and Psychedelia to create a spell-binding musical melange completely their own.

Now they are taking it to the road again with their old friend, exceptional Tuareg “desert blues” guitarist/singer Ahmed Ag Kaedy. Hailing from Kidal in the civil war-stricken north of Mali, Ahmed was a teen soldier before picking up an instrument to become a man of peace and music and is said to have swapped his gun for a guitar. His own band, Amanar, is considered to be one of the most influential voices of the modern, guitar-driven sound of the Sahel. After releasing a mutual seven inch and playing successful shows in 2018, the Malian / German Brotherhood is now back on the road and soon ready with their first full-length album. Onom Agemo and The Disco Jumpers and Ahmed Ag Kaedy played a great concert at ALICE in 2018, and the group is now returning to Copenhagen playing at Onkel Dannys Plads during this year’s Copenhagen Jazz Festival.

Copenhagen Jazz Festival 2022 takes place from June 24 – July 10 at 120 venues. See the full line-up at
