PaPa GoNi

A shared fascination for the Malian Wassoulou harp 'kamale n'goni', the djembé, traditional african tunes and rhythms is what brings the collective of musicians called PaPa GoNi together. They're steadily building up their repertoire since the beginning of 2014.  End of 2014 they released their first  EP with 6 songs + bonus track. In october 2015 the second mini-EP ‘Harvest’ came out.

In the short period of its existence PaPa GoNi has managed to create a recognizable musical identity, combining West African music with inspiring soul, jazz and ambient influences. 

PaPa GoNi's Guinean, Surinamese, Mexican and Dutch roots find a fertile common ground through open musical communication. It's astonishing to discover the ease with which the songs enter your head and heart, inviting you to dance and share their positive vibes and grooves.
