The Jazz Djogets (TJD) is a Singapore-based all-star, power-kampong septet which plays whatever they deem groovy – including a diverse blend of undiscovered hits from the 1950s to 70s inspired by jazz, funk, soul, disco, Malay Pop Yeh Yeh, Japanese enka and city pop, and dangdut. On top of recreating groovy and djogetable (danceable) versions of songs, their original compositions are so poisonously catchy, you simply cannot get them out of your head?
Since their inception in 2017, The Jazz Djogets have become a fixture in Singapore’s live circuit, whilst creating crazy new musical styles by breaking down and blurring musical barriers. Praised for their ‘cross-cultural appeal’, they have been featured in Neon Lights Festival 2018, Pesta Raya 2019, Gala Laga 2019 and their music has been played on Warna 94.2FM and Ria 89.7FM.?
This concert promises to be a high quality, organised mess with jaw-dropping musicianship, painstaking mash-ups and plenty of musical accidents. LASALLE Boleh Djoget!
