The Bahama Soul Club are a German-based group whose unique blend of Soul, Jazz, Bossa Nova, Afro and Caribbean influences has firmly put them on the map of the black music scene as one of the most exciting contemporary outfits.
The band led by Oliver Belz started in 2005 under the former name of The Juju Orchestra. Their album “Bossa Nova Is Not A Crime” became a smash hit in the worldwide club jazz scene and reached the official media control Jazz Charts #2.
In 2008 for legal reasons the band’s name was changed to Bahama Soul Club and with their first album RHYTHM IS WHAT MAKES JAZZ JAZZ (2008) they definitely hit the mark once again and also established a 7-piece live orchestra and played all famous jazz festivals in Germany and many more elsewhere in Europe. With the second album, BOSSA NOVA JUST SMELLS FUNKY (2010) BSC became one of the most important European Jazz projects and were finally invited to the German Groove Festival in Sao Paulo/Brazil. With THE CUBAN TAPES (2013) and at least HAVANA '58 (2016) there is no doubt Bahama Soul Club are officially claiming their rightful spot at the forefront of the club jazz scene for many years to come!
So what's the difference between BSC and other Nu-Jazz, Latin-Jazz, Bossa-Jazz, or whatever projects? Bahama Soul Club is better! Simply put, it’s a unique afrolicious Gumbo with 60s Soul and 70s Funk. The positive vibes and contagious rhythms transcend boundaries, language and race, for a timeless sound that nobody can resist!
