The Legend

by Jolly Papa

"This is a true mash-up of styles – some old, some new – that can only come from letting go of expectation and finding a creative process that doesn’t hurry or worry. African sounds blend and crash into other strains. There's something for everyone."

Album Notes
“The Legend” is Jolly Papa’s debut album as a creative partnership. It includes ten original tracks each with its own flavor and process, and all brought to life by the talent and friendship of a dozen killer musicians. We’re proud to be part of a thriving African music scene in the DMV, and this album features some of the area’s best, including Tanash, Emmanuel and Kobo of DC Highlife Stars, as well as members of Eme & Heteru and collaborations with vocalists Latoya Ekemode (Nigeria) and Atemi (Kenya). As the title track says, “The vibe is right” in DC, and this album and the whole Jolly Papa project is built on the premise that, “the more we stand side-by-side, the stronger we feel the tide.”
