Overview

This week we feature one of Nairobi's hardest working bands Gogosimo with lead singer/keyboardist James Gogo at the helm.

Marcus James Jozee, known as James Gogo is a multi-talented musician and vocalist. James, of Congolese, French and Kenyan heritage, was raised in the coastal town of Mombasa, Kenya. His late father was a Jazz Saxophone player back in the days and it was he who introduced James to music at a tender age. Music became his passion, starting with saxophone, then drums, piano and finally he majored in classical piano. Apart from his father, his inspiration comes from Stevie Wonder, Oscar Patterson and Mzee Ngala. He has thrilled audiences with his distinctive, playful and magical vocals and sound on the keyboard.

In 2000, he was a pianist in a band named Safari Sounds, and in 2002 he started a duo singing group and his own seven-piece band named Gogosimo.

James is the lead vocalist, composer, lyricist, producer and director of Gogosimo. James calls his original music Afro smooth sounds – easy listening and danceable, it is music that is a rich blend of coastal music, African beats and western instrumentation creating a unique East African sound. He also performs conversions of different genres of music from soul, jazz, rhumba, salsa, afro-beat, funk, pop and soft rock.
