Kolonel Djafaar is known for its delicious and quirky mix of Afrobeat and Ethio-jazz. And so, it should not come as a surprise that the nine-strong Antwerp band is heavily influenced by Fela Kuti, Jungle By Night, The Budos Band and Mulatu Astatke. Sultry, danceable, sweaty and infectious: a performance by Kolonel Djafaar is often an even greater delicacy than their recently released debut album Forgotten Kingdom.
