Under the Sun

A 7 track afro-cuban jazz album (41m 38s) — released January 17th 2020 on Altercat

Second album by Greece's premiere Afro-jazz band. An Odyssey of sound through West African percussion, jazz, Greek melodies and a tinge of funk.

Greece is maybe not the first country that comes to mind when you think of Afrojazz. Afrodyssey Orchestra unexpectedly hit the scene some time ago after we released In the Land of Aou Tila, their debut album — while that first album was going to the hands of the few lucky ones who managed to discover the band back then, Afrodyssey Orchestra were already booking more studio time in order to start working on further recordings. Three years later, we're proud to present you Under the Sun, with seven new compositions that reflect the logical evolution the band has experienced during this time, including some fine-tuning in their line-up. A melange of African polyrhythms, jazz, a scent of the Balkans and a fling with Afrobeat that holds hands with their beginnings — all this devised through the prism of the vast Greek musical universe.

The new LP from Afrodyssey Orchestra sweeps through the listener like an absolute force of nature. Fusing Afro, Byzantine and Jazz influences to devastating effect, it’s a unique concoction that is equal parts cerebral and danceable. This is a record that you could come back to time and time again and never be disappointed. - Alex McCall Jalapeno Records

Afrodyssey’s wonderful instrumental album sounds like a refreshing cocktail and immediately brings sunshine to cold winter days. "Under The Sun“ is a great surprise and already a highlight for 2020. - Shantisan Radio Superfly / Vienna
