Powered by Audioscrobbler™Ebenezer Kojo Samuels was born in 1943 in Monrovia, Liberia, West Africa. He pursued a course in art & music. He received his degree in arts. He taught art & sculpture from 1973 until 1976. At the same time he was following his dream of becoming a professional musician. In 1976 he formed the band Kapingbdi in Monrovia, Liberia. Kapingbdi is a funky Liberian Afro-jazz ensemble. In 1978 they released this self-titled Afro-rock-jazz album. They toured extensively & released two more albums, 1980s Hey Brother & 1981s Don’t Escape. The band dissolved in 1985. Kojo went on to perform with Fela Kuti & Cecil Taylor. In 2010 he started a fabulous new project called Kojato & the Afro Latin Cougaritas. They released All about Jazz in 2012. It features a fresh colorful sound, combining Afrolicious Bossa-Jazz with 60s Soul & 70s Funk. The positive vibes transcend boundaries, language, color lines.

Kojo has been dubbed ‘the high priest of music’ in Liberia. He is a spirited joyful player with sparkling energy, spontaneous & immediate with a concise social criticism. His songs tell illuminating stories full of wisdom & truth. On Kapingbdi's first release, the band are: Kojo Samuels – vocals, saxophone, flute, ballaphone, & shekere; Jean-Claude Nanga – guitar & cow bells; Mamadee Kamera – vocals, bass, & congas; Ciaffa Barclay – vocals, congas, & percussion; & Thomas Mensah – drums & sangba drums.
