So, you’ve read the band’s name and seen their picture. I would say that you’ve already made an assumption about the sort of music that Jinja Safari compose. Well, if you think anything like me, you are completely correct.
Jinja Safari play a brand of lush, African-influenced pop-rock, that they themselves have dubbed ‘forest rock,’ encompassing multiple elements of nature with an infectious, boyish enthusiasm. Their songs are filled with a joyous exuberance, framed by their bouncing percussion, mellifluous harmonies and use of a sitar.
With what is by all accounts an enthralling live show, laced with shrubbery and featuring Ugly Dancing, Jinja Safari is a band that will never leave you with a frown on your face.
