Ari Joshua shares this Afrobeat groove inspired by sacred plant medicine.

Step into the kaleidoscopic world of Kambo Wambo, a transcendent journey through psychedelic textures from this classic organ trio formation. Guitarist Ari Joshua, Drummer Russ Lawton, and Keyboardist Ray Paczkowski, deliver this strong melodic, polyrhythmic guitar anthem with an enchanting Afrobeat style, drawing upon the rich tapestry of West African tribal groove music.

As the ethereal notes begin to dance upon the air, Ari Joshua’s guitar takes center stage, weaving a mesmerizing web of melodic enchantment. Like a shaman invoking the spirits, his fingers gracefully glide over the strings, evoking a primal fire within every note. The rhythmic heartbeat of the song is led by the groove master, drummer Russ Lawton, whose beats throb with the pulse of life. With each strike of the drum, the tribal vibrations resonate, stirring something ancient and primal within. The essence of Afrobeat emerges, enveloping the listener in a rhythmic embrace that connects them to the very essence of existence.

In perfect harmony, ‘The Milkman’ Ray Paczkowski joins the sonic ceremony with his percussive approach to the keys. His fingers dance upon the piano, unleashing a cascade of hypnotic melodies and grooves that reverberate through the airwaves, enticing the spirit to move to the rhythm of the universe.

Together, these virtuosic musicians create an otherworldly experience, a bridge between the human spirit and the divine. Kambo Wambo embodies the spirit of psychedelic plant medicine, where the boundaries of perception are shattered, and the soul dances with the cosmic symphony. In this musical odyssey, the Afrobeat style becomes a vessel for the soul’s journey, embracing the tribal roots of ancient rhythms.

Kambo Wambo is a celebration of the mystical, a sonic pilgrimage that invites all who listen to partake in the transformative power of music and a tribute to the psychedelic experience of plant medicine.
