Looking forward to introduce Etuk Ubong to the Schokoladen Stage, I have had the honor to work Etuk now for a few shows and have invited him before our next festival gig to discuss his work and philopsophy and of course hear a live set ! In Lagos he is running his own club TRUTH so this is also very interesting to learn about the ecosystem and scene in Lagos opposed to Berlin. Similarities and differences.

Hailed by none other than Seun Kuti as “one of the best things to come out of Lagos”, Nigerian trumpeter, composer and bandleader Etuk Ubong has developed an original style he calls “Earth Music”. Weaving together a unique combination of not only afrobeat, highlife and jazz, but also the ritualistic drumming of Ekombi, the result is urgent and highly energetic, yet spiritual; his compositions reflecting his heritage and life philosophy of goodwill, peace and love for humanity.

Etuk Ubong uniquely combines Afrobeat, Highlife and Jazz with the ritual drumming of the Ekombi. The result is haunting, high-energy, spiritual and driving. Inspired by jazz greats and the sounds of the elements water, wind and fire, trumpeter and composer Etuk Ubong calls his music “Earth Music”. Born in Lagos in 1992, he joins the tradition of fiery, Afrobeat-rooted, hard-bop influenced trumpeters that goes back to Tunde Williams, who in turn was a founding member of Fela Kuti’s seminal band Africa 70 in the 1960s. In the bands of famous musicians such as Victor Olaiya, Femi Kuti and Buchi, the Lagos-based artist was able to live and develop his passion for music. Etuk Ubong’s style captivates with urgent tempos, powerful horn charts and highly explosive socio-political lyrics. In short: rousing, overwhelming!Etuk Ubong is also the owner of TRUTH nightclub, currently one of the hottest clubs in the heart of Lagos since the demise of the legendary Fela Kuti’s Shrine.
