The strength of this eleven-piece revolves around its energetic cohesion between percussion, rhythm and horn sections. Renowned for their ability to engage a wide variety of audiences, the band draws a dance floor full of smiling faces at every event.

Jujuba features Nojeem Lasisi from Igbo Ora, Oyo State, in Nigeria. He ranks among the world's elite talking drum players. Nojeem was given his first drum at age four by his father, also a master drummer, who handed down to Nojeem its powerful language. As a member of Nigerian superstar King Sunny Ade’s group, the African Beats, Nojeem toured the world and appears on numerous recordings with King Sunny, including “Seven Degrees North” and “Odu¬Â.

Nojeem has settled in the Northwest and assembled Jujuba from local musicians who all share a true love for Nigerian music. Their diverse experiences in a wide range of styles propel the project into new directions based on Afrobeat, Juju and traditional Nigerian folk music. Nojeem Lasisi and Jujuba have created a unique blend of African and Western music they hope is enjoyable to all.

Since the fall of 2002, the band has elicited a strong flow of positive feedback from audiences, concert promoters, festival organizers and the press. As Marty Hughley of The Oregonian puts it, ¬Å“the heat and flavor was all in the groove.¬Â The joy Jujuba shares with its audiences encourages new material, a tighter connection and a growing energy from each show to the next.

    this is a very real and unique opportunity to surround yourself in culture, its why I love Portland is the diversity of the music, and to be completely honest, I would really like to see how they are going to get all members in their band on the stage, because its not a stage elevated, its equal with the dancers, this is gonna be like the band plays between the dancers. It will be interesting, and I do like horns, so the real reason I want to go is to get enriched on what they have created, as they put it “our music is a unique blend of African and Western music ” they hope is enjoyable to all.” And I think that the Goodfoot crowd will be excited to be here.
