about

Yankari advance the original Afrobeat genre by incorporating contemporary sounds, such as, jazz, funk, dance, rock-and-roll whilst keeping the traditional groove elements of Afrobeat.

This new sound has world-wide appeal and the Yankari fan base
stretches from Ireland to Japan, Brazil to Spain, Nigeria to US.

Yankari founding members, brothers Segun and Michael Akano along
with Uché Gabriel Akujobi, are originally from Nigeria and came
together in Dublin while playing at various gigs around the city.
Gradually through the love of music and rhythms from their Yoruba and
Igbo cultures they created the groovy and energetic sound that is
reminiscence of the Afrobeat greats of the 60's and 70's but with a
modern twist. That sound is called Yankari.

Memoirs Of Our Time is infused with freedom, hope and justice and will keep you nodding and grooving while you loose yourself in its authentic sound.
