Manifesto (180g Remastered)

A 7 track afrobeat album (43m 45s) — released February 23rd 2015 on DO RIGHT! MUSIC

The Souljazz Orchestra, hailing from Ottawa Canada, are one of the hardest working bands in show business. For the last decade, Pierre Chretien and company have been spreading the gospel of heavy funk, soul, Latin and African sounds via their crowd moving live show, and a catalogue of outstanding releases.

Do Right! Music is proud to announce the newly remastered 180G reissue of 2008's magnetic Manifesto. After the success of 2007's Freedom No Go Die, the Souljazz Orchestra toured internationally, picking up wisdom and influence from all over the globe. As a result, SJO's follow-up is decorated with massive life-affirming chants, majestic brass flourishes and a general positivity that affirms the togetherness of the people of every nation.

Mixed with overheated organs, hypnotic bass and poly-rhythmic percussion work, the touch of spiritual jazz and tropical funk brings the band's afrobeat to the next level, delving into the traditions of ancient folk tales and a deep-rooted togetherness in humanity that gives weight to their politically conscious message.
