Jazz Musical Festival in Kota Kinabalu

Nafas (Ireland)

Combining pentatonic traditions of the East, Tommee Balukea’s enchanting Kecapi (lap-harp) playing, versatile guitar lines and powerful vocals draw a melodic contrast to Aminah’s urban-influenced toasting and free-style improvisations. Her soulful bluesy tone adds balance and feminine presence to the Nafas project. While contemporary producer and sonic-artist Salim AKA Mr. Upfull’s bass-culture influences add dub-style arrangements, played from a live controller platform. Collectively conjuring a future world-jazz, dub-soul synergy! Nafas the infectious rhythm driven sound sure to move music lovers.
