biography
In a burst of creative activity peaking between 1988 and 1996, Edmonton's Juba brought the magic of their African-inspired music to audiences from Yellowknife to Zimbabwe. Although the group is no longer active, its members remain close, and occasionally reunite in various configurations.

Juba ignited audiences at virtually every major folk festival in Canada, and in 1991 realized a longtime dream by taking their music to Africa. They also taught vocal workshops to many Alberta choirs. In 1996, they inspired (then-brand-new) Kokopelli to pursue African music.

Juba released four albums, including 1994's critically acclaimed cd Mafaro (available worldwide through iTunes).

You are right!! They were amazing!! I work next door and dragged everyone over to the market to listen and watch. The youth from Namibia? They couldn't stop laughing, smiling and dancing and you could see both groups were real 'family' Made my heart feel so incredibly warm and wonderful! About the article...who cares about the order. They recommend a listener account to give you a bit of a perspective of this place from our side :-) Thank you again :-)

That would indeed have been Kokopelli, Calista. A few years back, they toured with a choir from Namibia. When we did the workshop, I remembered thinking, "Gee, I hope Kokopelli is still around when my kids are old enough to be in it," and now they are! Thanks for the link.

This is so beautiful! I actually caught a group of singers from Africa and Edmonton a few years back, playing in a large open market in Victoria, BC. They were young and vibrant and excellent! It was amazing! I have never forgotten them and now, here you are...probably their inspiration! Thank you so much for sharing your work with us & Welcome to T61. I'm going to leave you the link to a quick read article for artists here~tips and info. http://passivepromotion.com/thesixtyone
