Cutting-edge psychedelic (punk-)jazz where Sons of Kemet and Dans Dans meet.
Echoes Of Zoo is the latest project of Nathan Daems (Black Flower). He is well surrounded by musicians who have earned their stripes working with De Beren Gieren, Compro Oro and Sylvie Kreusch. On their debut EP ‘First Provocations’ we hear high-quality psychedelic jazz played with a punk attitude and echoes of the fury of Rage Against The Machine. Call it a mix of Middle Eastern rock music, the percussive complexity of West African drums, and occasional dub influences. Wanna bet that Shabaka Hutchings would be an instant fan?
