Formed out of a desire to highlight the musical connections between New Orleans and West Africa, the Fufu All-Stars play highlife, gospel, and brass band music from Ghana and Nigeria, mixed with American funk and jazz. In the band's loose-limbed take on these styles, powerful brass harmonies mingle with darting guitar lines, infectious traditional rhythms, and percussive fireworks to create a sound that packs dancefloors and puts smiles on faces. The eight-piece line-up features notable New Orleans musicians including Weedie Braimah, Luke Quaranta, Michael Watson, Ed Lee, and many others. The Fufu All-Stars have quickly made a name for themselves in the Crescent City through high-energy shows at Maple Leaf, dba, Oyster Fest, Blue Nile, and Gasa Gasa. With an ebullient sound built on deep tradition and playful innovation, this is music to move to, but also to be moved by. Get ready to move...

See You at The Leaf!
