Voodoo Sound Club’s music, with its explosive mix of jazz, funk, Afrobeat and psychedelic styles - better, Voodoo Jazz - brings jazz back to all the black music expressions which made entire generations dance: funk, Afrobeat , bringing them all back to their original, mystical African matrix.
The band's music, comprised of haunting original tracks as well as surprising cover songs from artists like Manu Dibango, Fela Kuti and Jimi Hendrix is entirely dedicated to energy and to the dance itself. At the same time, it perks up the ears of the most discriminating and experienced audiophiles.
Pagnozzi's torrential sax improvisations, together with their hypnotic repetitiveness of rhythmic progressions that draw from many traditional spiritual music traditions, explode in a more ritual and ancestral dimension which inescapably draws listeners into new physical, emotional, and intellectual heights. It is truly Voodoo for the 21st century.
