ROOTS AND JAZZ TRIO

The “Global Junction” gave birth to a universal musical expression gleaning from the influences of African Roots, Blues, Jazz, Funk, Latin and R&B, producing a unique improvisational experience – a fine point between acoustic and powerful electric sounds. Pianist Simon George from Charlotte NC met Kinobe in 2010 while the Ugandan musician was touring in the United States. An impromptu evening jam session in Charlotte NC was the inception of a meaningful friendship. Later, in 2012, Simon visited Africa to perform and work with Kinobe.

They continued to write music together, and in November 2014, they hit the studio to record some of their work. Kinobe had met with an amazing drummer, Phill Bronson, play during a set in 2012 and there they exchanged contacts, but would not speak again until 2 years later. Consequently, in conversation about finding a drummer, Kinobe and Simon learned they had Phill in common. Furthermore, from that moment on it was settled in their hearts these chance meetings were actually divine connections.
