The rich sonic palette of the band reflect the various interests of its musicians, who lead their own musical projects aside from Jirapah. As they enjoy everything from rock, jazz, hardcore, pop, psychedelic, experimental, hip hop to afrobeat, there isn't a particular musical direction that Jirapah would like to pursue. It is perhaps the desire to try many possibilities that makes Jirapah special. Their music can sometimes be tightly wound, sometimes free-formed and improvised, sometimes introspective, and sometimes superficial. Even with this variety, the group's love for good, simple tunes always shines through and this is ultimately what can be described as their character.
