Event Description

A 5-piece dance band, playing music of Africa and America- both traditional and original. JAKA was formed in 1996 in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Our current band members are Dan Pauli on mbira, vocals, and percussion; Marco Topo on bass and vocals; Ansel Carpenter on chromatic marimba; Dmitri Buckler-Burtiss on drumset, and Phelan Marshall on djembe. A large family of musicians join them from time to time, so the band can vary from 2 to 8 players.

Along with the latest JAKA info, you can find out about classes and events at the World Rhythm Studio. You can purchase marimbas and mbiras from Dan Pauli.  Enjoy!
