In 2019 the band went on an North-American tour to play single live shows and perform at festivals. Some of the highlights of this tour is the full house show in the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, the 8th performance at the Rochester International Jazzfest (one of the 10 largest jazz festivals of the world) in New York, and the closing gig at the Edmonton International Jazz Festival of Canada. In the band’s opinion the latter show was the best and they decided to release the recorded multitracks. Djabe played 2 sets with different tracklists, now featured both of them on this release.
“Live in Edmonton” showcases why Djabe is the #1 Fusion band in Hungary, right from the opening track the listener is treated to a very well-crafted live recording, great playing throughout the band with exciting arrangements and energized solo performances. It is so refreshing to hear such a strong performance captured “live”, the way it is intended to be experienced, in the moment!
Djabe has appeared several times in Edmonton and always deliver a high quality, world class fusion set that leaves the audience satisfied and wanting much more.
Congratulations on the newest release, another significant recording and addition to Djabe’s very impressive track record of being one of the best working fusion bands in the world today.”
