Ramatou Orchestra

“Ramatou” is Wolof for “parrot”. And the music of the band of the same name is just as colorful, loud and lively. Ramatou Orchestra is an eight-piece jazz ensemble from Frankfurt am Main, Germany. The band combines African influences, neo-soul, fusion and funk, with a variety of contemporary styles that are best described as “jazz”. A driving rhythm section with danceable grooves, catchy melodies and varied instrumentation held together by unusual arrangements, cohesive soundscapes and the joyful improvisations create the “Ramatou sound”.
