Afro-Urbanity offers a world-class blend of jazz, fusion, and Afro-beat
(Published: September 16, 2020)

Afro-Urbanity is a very diverse music project which just dropped a new self-titled album. The act's style could be described as a unique blend of jazz, fusion, and Afro-beat, going for an edgy modern feel.

This new album features some world-class production aesthetic with a punchy sound that highlights Afro-Urbanity's distinctive personality and flow. The release features nine songs including the opening track, "Abre el Camino: Eleggua," which immediately strikes for its Afro-Cuban rhythms and vocal melodies. The song "Ochun" as a more melancholic twist, but it later opens up into a soothing rhythm. The track "Repica Bien el Tambor" prominently features vocals and percussion. This has a very cool Puerto Rican folk vibe to it, and it is rhythmically driven track. The next tune, "El Callejòn de Los Rumberos" features a neo-soul feel with a smooth arrangement featuring a dry drum-kit, some lush vocals and some electric piano, not to mention the killer bass lines.

"Oddie" is a deeper dive into electronica, with drum machines and synths dominating the arrangement, echoing the work of groups such as Nu Guinea. "Yemaya" is another exciting release featuring some of the deeper jazz influences on the album, although the sound also recalls some fine '70s progressive music. "Chango" is an outstanding tune, with a more traditional feel, and a stunning rhythm section. The song "Llàmame" is a soothing, romantic ballad with a smooth jazz vibe. The closing number, "Oggun," kicks off with a lush piano arrangement, and it features a collaboration with Sayaka, bringing a different feel to the set list, while still retaining the group's unique grooves.

When it comes to intensity and energy, these songs definitely deliver the goods, showcasing the project's commitment to giving his audience something quite special. This is definitely going to be your favorite addition to any jazz, fusion or playlist out there, so tune in and hit that play button.
