Barabara is the first single by Dem Juju Poets taken off their forthcoming album Liberated Thoughts out due early 2017 on Matasuna Records.
David Hanke aka Renegades Of Jazz, brainchild behind Dem Juju Poets, keeps on with his distinctive Afro sound and delivers a great 45 in various styles. Dem Juju Poets will be now the main outfit for Hanke to release more Afro driven music in the future.
Barabara is a heavy piece of dancefloor Afrojazz goodness, decent horn sections, tough drums and rich percussions combined with vintage vocals. People's Republic is a organ and flute driven Afrosoul tune with a heavy brass riff, thriving percussions and flute solos galore.
The sold out 7inch vinyl was picked by Flea Market Funk (New Jersey | US) as one of the best 10 records for their 'World Funky Jams' best of 2016 list. Juno Records (London | UK) has chosen the release also on the best of 2016 'International Recommendations' list.
