I Say Disaster
'A globally-inspired, horn-driven ensemble that you'd be crazy not to dance to. Elements of funk, Afrobeat, salsa, jam rock, and a pinch of hip hop make this a party waiting to happen. I have yet to see them live, but it's a sound that's built for the immediacy of a club.' - casuallistening.com Doko Benjo was formed by a group of friends on chilly Chicago night in November of 2004. The group had spent all night drinking and socializing when suddenly the idea struck like a bolt of lighting. Everyone in the group played a different instrument... it was too coincidental to not try and make it work. It took a few years to discover their sound, and while it is still developing, the growth in musical prowess and song-writing has been incredible. The latest release 'I Say Disaster' is their best effort to date. The songs go beyond the standard 4/4 pop/ rock/funk formula, incorporating more challenging and interesting musical ideas yet remain aurally accessible to an everyday listener.
