Powered by Audioscrobbler™Orchestra Gold - Djama - Psychedelic Afro Funk

Orchestra Gold all started when....Mariam, (lead singer), and Erich came together in 2015 to record this first slew of psychedelic afro funk songs in Segou, Mali. Mariam and Erich knew each other, but had never really worked together on any soul or funky music before. However, at one point during the demo recordings, they remember looking at each other and thinking, “this could be something really amazing!”

Visas, logistics and other hurdles took about 4 years to turn that seed into a reality. After a long drawn out visa excursion, Mariam landed in Oakland, CA in March of 2018. They began assembling a crew of amazing Bay Area musicians to flesh out the psychedelic vision for Orchestra Gold. Although the music is challenging, things came together very quickly. Five months later, they entered Coyote Hearing Studios in West Oakland to record the first batch of songs. Luke Bace, bass player, engineered the session. He would click record, then run back to his position so he could play. The intention was to create a sound that is grittier, fatter, dirtier and more analog than most others would be willing to go. We wanted you to feel like you stepped into a Bamako music club circa 1976. We’d love to hear what you think about this album. Shoot us a note!
