Trio Mokili featuring Makaya McCraven on drumset.

Trio Mokili play roots and jazz-inflected renditions of music from across the African continent: Ethiojazz, Nigerian Afrobeat, Zimbabwean mbira music, Ghanaian Palm Wine, Malian desert blues, and more. Guitarist Nathaniel Braddock is considered a North American authority on African guitar styles, leading the internationally-touring ensemble’s Occidental Brothers Dance Band Int’l, and Air Congo and also collaborating extensively with musicians from Mali, Ghana, Zambia, and Congo, Chicago, Boston and beyond. Braddock is joined on drums by Amherst, MA alum, Makaya McCraven who is currently making huge waves in the drum world for his extraordinary creative talent on the drum set and more. His 2015 solo debut album “In The Moment” placed in many jazz critics top ten lists and his current album “Universal Beings” is also being heralded as another ground breaking instant classic. Upright bassist Junius Paul, featured extensively on McCraven’s records, brings deep groove and dazzling improvisational intuition to make Trio Mokili’s music rootsy and a riveting live experience. The group is working on their debut album, a mix of live and studio recording capturing the energy of their live improvisations and the sounds of the African golden age. This will be the band’s Boston debut
