Souljazz Orchestra Share New Track & World Tour Dates

Ottawa’s Souljazz Orchestra does not mess around. One look at the band’s rigorous tour schedule makes it clear that this is a group of musicians on a mission. The super-group’s dedication shines through the music as well of course, a distillation of a variety of Latin & African styles with a solid vocabulary of funk, soul and jazz. Check out the new track “Cartão Postal” which fuses Brazilian samba with Angolan semba, with lyrics (in Portuguese, of course) contrasting the generic “post-card” conception of the Tropics with the reality of poverty that pervades many of these idealized areas. The band’s new album Solidarity will be out September 18th. For further information on these tour dates, visit the band’s site.
