Ayom are musical seafarers who traverse the Atlantic, from Angola to Brazil, with a distinctly Mediterranean identity.
Ayom's self titled debut album is a swinging collection of tracks pointing at, and borrowing from, the folk music of Brazil, Angola and Cape Verde. Blending century old traditions with the black and rhythmical language of lusophone cultures, Ayom defy the purists and provide a hot-stepping and spiritual voyage across the Atlantic.
Formed in Barcelona in 2018, Ayom is made up of 6 members from Angola, Brazil, Greece and Italy with Brazilian singer and percussionist Jabu Morales centre stage.
Their name refers to the "Lord of Music" and the pulsing energy that exists in the tambor and drums from the Orixás, the gods worshipped in the Brazilian Candomblé faith.
"With an incredible array of influences flooding through the groups raw and polyrhythmic foundations, it's perhaps the charm of North East Brazilian percussionist and singer Jackson do Pandeiro, the positivity of Brazilian singer Dona Onete and the poetry of Cesaria Evora and Bonga that the groups sound can be attributed to, and within those influences is an all-pervading connection to Afro Brazilian or Afro Portuguese cultures and the music of funaná, carimbó, cumbia, baião, semba and so much more. "
Jabu (BR) , Alberto (ITA), Timoteo (GRE) e Walter (Ang)
